A chakra bracelet meaning could be many things. Each crystal on a chakra bracelet has its own meaning and purpose. I go over each crystal typically found on a chakra bracelet and what they mean here.
What are chakras?
The concept of chakras is rooted in ancient hinduism and is common in buddhism and yoga. There are seven main chakra energy centers that run along your spinal column from the base of your spine to the top of your head.
Yogis believe that chakras are associated with specific energies, body parts, emotions and spiritual issues.
Chakra Bracelet Meaning
A 7 chakra bracelet has a crystal for each chakra which is good for overall balance and energy.
In addition to the 7 chakra jewelry, there’s jewelry that focuses on one chakra, like this crown chakra bracelet. This helps to focus the crystal energy on fixing imbalances in a specific area.
The root chakra is located at the base of the spine and is associated with trust, grounding, safety and security. The physical areas it affects are the legs, feet, base of spine, tailbone and rectum.
Your root chakra may be imbalanced if you’ve been feeling stuck, fatigued or have been suffering from anxiety and stress.
Also, physical discomforts in your legs, feet, spine, tailbone or problems with your colon or bladder could be a root chakra issue.
Chakra Bracelet Meaning – Red Or Black Crystals
The root chakra is red, so the red crystals on a chakra bracelet are for the root chakra. Red crystals that help the root chakra are typically carnelian, garnet, red jasper and bloodstone.
Red crystals are energizing and will ignite your passion. So if you’re feeling sluggish and tired, a red crystal like Carnelian can help.
Black crystals are grounding and are good for the root chakra too. These are sometimes on chakra bracelets instead of red crystals. Choose a chakra bracelet with black crystals if you’re feeling anxious, stressed or overwhelmed. These can ground you and bring you back to the present moment.
Black crystals that are commonly found on chakra bracelets are lava rock, onyx, obsidian, and hematite.
The sacral chakra is your physical center and is located below your belly button. It’s associated with sexuality and creativity. Physically it affects the lower back, sex organs, hips, pelvis and all the organs in the lower abdomen.
Your sacral chakra may be imbalanced if you have difficulty with intimacy, infertility, irregular periods, creative blocks or lack confidence in yourself.
Chakra Bracelet Meaning – Orange or Brown Crystals
The Sacral Chakra is orange so the crystals on a chakra bracelet for this chakra are usually orange, such as orange carnelian, orange calcite or sunstone.
Orange crystals will give you confidence and help you enjoy the pleasures of life.
Brown crystals can also be found on chakra bracelets for the sacral chakra. They promote harmony and help you connect to nature. They can give you strength and increase your vitality.
Brown crystals are usually dark amber, smoky quartz, jasper, or tiger’s eye.
The solar plexus is below your sternum and above your belly button. It’s associated with wisdom and power. Physically it affects the stomach, upper intestines, pancreas, gallbladder, liver, adrenals, and mid-back.
Energetically it affects your personality, self-esteem, courage and maturity.
Your solar plexus may be imbalanced if you feel powerless or victimized, have low self esteem, anxiety or stomach pains.
Chakra Bracelet Meaning – Yellow Crystals
Yellow is associated with the third chakra called the Solar Plexus which is your self-identity, self esteem and courage. Think of the strength and courage of a lion and its yellow mane. It also represents money and wealth.
Yellow crystals will help you feel calm and give you a strong sense of your own power.
The yellow crystals used on chakra bracelets are usually amber, citrine, yellow tigers eye, pyrite or topaz.
The heart chakra is in the center of your chest and is associated with love and healing. Physically it affects the heart, lungs, ribs, upper back, arms, shoulders, hands, circulatory system, and breathing.
Energetically it’s associated with unconditional love, anger, forgiveness, compassion and grief.
Chakra Bracelet Meaning – Green Or Pink Crystals
Green crystals represent the Heart Chakra, unconditional love and compassion. Green also promotes health and wealth. They can help you feel grateful, loved and give love and feel compassion towards others.
The green crystals on chakra bracelets are usually green aventurine, amazonite, or jade.
Pink crystals are also associated with the heart chakra and sometimes can be found on a chakra bracelet. Pink represents love, relationships, forgiveness and commitment. It can also help with grief.
Pink crystals typically found on a chakra bracelet are rose quartz, rhodonite, or pink tourmaline.
The Throat Chakra is located in your throat and is associated with communication. Physically it affects the throat, thyroid, teeth, gums, mouth and jaw. Energetically it affects communication, speaking your truth, and self expression.
Your throat chakra may be imbalanced if you have trouble with communication, speaking up, sore throat or TMJ.
Chakra Bracelet Meaning – Blue Crystals
Blue crystals are associated with the throat chakra. They help with communication, creativity and are calming.
The blue crystals on chakra bracelets are usually aquamarine, lapis lazuli, sodalite or celestite.
Third Eye Chakra
The Third Eye Chakra is located at the center of your forehead and is associated with awareness. Physically it affects the head, eyes, ears and brain. Energetically it is your intuition, psychic ability and your relationship with your higher self.
Your third eye chakra may be imbalanced if you’re feeling lost, don’t have life purpose, you’re indecisive, suffer from headaches or brain fog.
Chakra Bracelet Meaning – Purple Crystals
Purple, indigo and violet crystals are associated with the third eye chakra. They will enhance your intuition and critical thinking. They can connect you to your higher self and help in healing work.
Purple crystals found on chakra bracelets are usually amethyst, but sometimes labradorite, fluorite or lepidolite crystal beads are used.
The crown chakra is at the top of your head and is associated with your spirituality. Physically it affects skin, bones and muscle. Energetically it connects you to the divine, empathy, compassion and your spiritual path.
If you lack purpose, feel insignificant, or lonely, your crown chakra may be imbalanced.
Chakra Bracelet Meaning – White Crystals
White or clear crystals are associated with the crown chakra which is located just above the top of your head. These crystals have high vibrations and can be used to enhance the properties of other crystals and to cleanse them.
White or clear crystals typically found on chakra bracelets are clear quartz, howlite, moonstone or selenite.
How To Use A Chakra Bracelet
For overall balance and energy, I suggest wearing a 7 chakra bracelet. To get the most benefit, cleanse and charge it regularly and set an intention for it.
Cleanse Your Chakra Bracelet
Proper care of your chakra bracelet will help the crystals maintain the highest vibrational energy possible. This will allow them to function the best they can for you.
The crystals in your 7 chakra bracelet have a pure vibration. As you wear them or as they travel from place to place before you own them, the energy they’re exposed to affects the vibration of the crystals. You need to cleanse them of the energies they picked up before you wear them.
You should cleanse them weekly for the highest vibration. I don’t mean dusting them or washing them with soap and water.
Use smoke, moonlight, sunlight or sound so they can vibrate at their highest level.

Set An Intention For Your Chakra Bracelet
Setting an intention for your chakra bracelet before wearing it lets the universe know your desires. In turn the universe can help you manifest your intention.
Setting an intention can be as easy as saying an affirmation or writing the affirmation down. The more specific you are with your intention, the better the universe will understand and support you.
Hold your chakra bracelet in your dominant hand and say out loud your affirmation three times.
“I balance all areas of my life. All is well”.
Chakra bracelets can have many meanings. They mean different things to different people depending on what you need it for. You can use a chakra bracelet to heal a broken heart, communicate clearly for a job interview, or connect to your spirituality, among many other things.
You can set the meaning for your chakra bracelet by affirming an intention for it.
