Dare to Wear Red?
This Fall red is everywhere….different shades, especially deep burgundy and dark red, all the fashion magazines and department stores are showing this color! Some shy away from wearing red, thinking it is too bold or bright however think twice because red exudes power and self-confidence. It is the color of energy, passion, action and strength. Wearing red makes a statement. That’s why we love to wear red.
Did you know wearing red colored gemstones can also offer health-giving benefits? Did you know that Grammy winning singer Adele’s favorite gemstone is Carnelian, and the red, orange, or amber variety of Chalcedony. Believed to boost confidence and the power of true expression, Adele says she “can’t perform” without her Carnelian crystals.
Made from the most widely available microcrystalline quartz, this bright and cheery version of Chalcedony gets its brown and orange red specks, bands, and stripes from iron impurities, which look best when polished. Ancient Egyptians regarded the carnelian as a sunset enclosed in stone and called it ‘the setting sun’.
Carnelian is also a stabilizing stone. Therefore, it’s a perfect stone for women who lead very busy and sometimes chaotic lives. Sounds like lots of women we know, don’t you think? With the stabilizing energies of carnelian, you can continue to function on high energy levels, even in times of crisis.
Red agate is another stone that is a member of the Chalcedony family that has healing properties. Known as a “protection” stone, red agate shields the wearer from negative energy and helps reduce anxiety. Red agate offers calming benefits, helping one to stay grounded during stressful and emotional times.
Both Carnelian and Red Agate will keep you motivated and grounded. These are great stones for women who have demanding careers and are required to churn out creative output on a regular basis.
Another easy way to add power “red” to your look is with a scarf. When men want to make a statement going into a meeting, they wear a red tie. For women, adding a red scarf creates a similar bold statement that exudes self-confidence.
