Colours and their Sound and frequencies.

Following is a brief description of the different colours
and their Sound and frequencies.

Scriabin's theory was that each note in the octave could be associated with a specific colour, and in Prometheus, the Poem of Fire, he wrote the colours and music to match. His arrangement was:

C Db D Eb E F F# G Ab A Bb B
Red Violet Yellow Steel Pale






Orange Purple Green Steel Pale


Berlioz, Debussy and Wagner were also interested in music and colour and Rimsky-Korsakov considered C as white.

The Rosicrucian Order based their theories on Just intonation and suggest that note names, frequencies, and colours should be:

Note C C# D D# E F F# G G# A A# B
Colour Yellow-


Green Green-


Blue Blue-


Violet Violet-




Red Red-


Orange Yellow
Hertz 256 288 320 341 192 213 240

Charles Fourier in Theorie de l'Unite Universelle 1846 states the connection between colours, note names and metals to be:

Iron Silver Tin Platinum Lead Gold Copper
Violet Indigo Azure Green Yellow Orange Red

The spectrum from a rainbow is described as: Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Indigo Violet Frequencies in the visible spectrum are between 1014 & 1015 Hertz.

The best part of the rainbow isn't the pot of gold...
...It's the rainbow itself

RED -Activates, vitalizes, intensifies, releases blocked energy, produces collagen-
It is the longest wavelength and penetrates the deepest. It is used for rheumatics; arthritic pain; liver stimulant; LBP; pigmentation; stretch marks and circulation. 650-780nm - root chakra

ORANGE - It restores, animates, warms, stimulates, works more gently than red, building up energy step by step, unlocks deadlocked processes, cheers up. Those who love orange are said to be extroverts who often love cooking and are often creative. It helps puffy skin; spleen; hernia; muscle prolapse; sinus;
It represents the spleen, gut energy centre and eating. 570-650nm - sacral chakra

YELLOW - It fortifies, tones, opens, brightens, stimulates without exciting, extends energy, reinforces weak processes, loosens overly rigid structures, strengthens the nerves; stimulates connective tissue; eczema; flatulence; lymph drainage; skin troubles; nervous exhaustion. It represents the central nervous system 510-700nm - solar plexus chakra.

GREEN - It Equalizes, relaxes, calms down, keeps physical and mental energy dynamically balanced, releases tensed-up, painful processes, brings profound serenity. Recent studies have shown it to be good for acne lesions. It helps heart problems; HBP; burns; cuts; bruises; pigmentation 475-510nm - heart chakra.

BLUE - . It reduces inflammation (as in acne). Recent studies into the use of blue light suggests that it may be useful in preventing or controlling suggests that it may be useful in preventing or controlling periodontal conditions, which can result in the loss of bone and teeth It has also been discovered that blue produces restful sleep. insomnis; sunburn; toothache; rashes; laryngitis; It also soothes, focuses, cools down, collects and structures energy, re-regulates hyperactive, inflammatory and derailing processes, brings serenity and clarity. 445-475nm - throat chakra

INDIGO - Raises concentration; Detoxing and cooling; It strengthens lymphatics; muscle toning; reduces bleeding; astringent; has high level of vibration; is known for its effect on eyes, ear ,nose, throat and sinuses; lungs; migraine; sinuses. 400-445nm - brow chakra.

VIOLET - It inspires, attenuates, transforms energy on a higher level, supports mental processes, relaxes the nerves, soothes nervous irritations and relieves pain. It aids HBP; acne blemishes; lymph drainage; neuralgia; muscle relaxer; rheumatics; rosacea; sciatica; anti inflammatory.

Velocity=Wavelength x Frequency
This formula describes the relationship between wavelength and
frequency. Since the speed of light is known and fixed, reliable
numbers can be generated for the frequencies of the colors. For

2.997925 x 10+8 m/s (speed of light)/ 3.95 x 10-7 nm (wavelength of
violet) = 7.58968354 x 10+1 4 Hz (frequency of violet)

Starting from the wavelengths arrived at above, as well as intervening
numbers for the tertiary colors, and calculating their frequencies in
this manner provides these results:
