The polarity color is indigo and includes stones such as amethyst.

GREEN: Activates the Heart Chakra/Heart Center – The body’s most powerful chakra and influences passion, love, and depression. As a color of nature and prosperity, stones such as green aventurine, jade, or emeralds are ideal for radiating more loving energy and stabilizing emotions and anxieties. Using a polarity color of light reds, such as rose quartz can serve as a prolific asset in soothing and healing woes of the mind, body, and spirit.

BLUE: Activates the Throat Chakra/Communication Center – Where you find your truth, this energy center becomes blocked when you are dishonest, and wearing a blue stone such as lapis lazuli or blue topaz can help activate and balance the throat chakra.
