These elements are all connected with a color. For example, fire is most often paired with red, yellow, orange, pink or purple – which is why these colors are often used together in Chinese culture. Special care is given that the elements flow naturally, in a clockwise order, just as in nature: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Of course, we all know that Feng Shui has escaped China’s borders a long time ago and is now an international practice. Its usage of gemstones is closely connected to each of the 5 elements, which can be seen below: • Wood Gemstones (green, aqua, purple): Amethyst, Amazonite, Blue Calcite, Malachite; • Fire Gemstones (red, yellow, orange): Red Jasper, Carnelian; • Earth Gemstones (yellow, brown, green): Yellow Jasper, Petrified Wood, Agate; • Metal Gemstones (metallic, white, grey): White Quartz, Smoky Quartz; • Water Gemstones (black and blue): Onyx, Blue Agate, Labradorite.
