Color Affects us: Orange

Fire Agate BraceletThere was no word for the color Orange until the fruit first arrived in Europe. Because of the cost associated with shipping from the tropics, orange became associated with aristocracy. Through Renaissance art, the color orange had great symbolic importance as the color of wealth.

Orange is commonly associated with the Sun so it creates warm and energetic feelings. It stimulates the mind AND the emotions!  Wear orange if you want to get noticed. It demands attention. The softer oranges (like peach) are a friendlier way to get noticed (without the appearance of screaming)

Fire Agate is one of the gems that is a beautiful shade of orange. Consider wearing it as an accent to a more traditional attire.
