Root Chakra Stones Crystals & Gemstones

Root Chakra
 (Muladhara) is the foundation of your chakra system located at the base of the spine and associated with the element of Earth.

The Root Chakra is essential because it's where your bond to Earth starts. We all need solid, deep roots to evolve and the assurance of being grounded in the nurturing essence of Mother Earth.

Some of the main functions of the first chakra include:

  • Grounding
  • Survival
  • Stability
  • Comfort
  • Safety
  • Security
  • Energy Flow

Root chakra's main color is red - a color that immediately catches your attention. Red is very often used to signal threats and it can quickly bring your attention back to safety.

Most of the gemstones and crystals that correspond to the grounding energy of root chakra are also red.

Red stones will boost your vitality, strength, power, courage, and self-awareness, and allow you to remain more grounded in the physical body.

Some of the other stones which match the energetic frequency of 1st chakra are black. Black stones and crystals are known to offer the stability and protection required to balance the root chakra.
