Light boxes and color healing
Chroma therapy is healing with colored light. One version of this combines crystal healing energy with colored light treatment by means of a crystal light box. Crystal light boxes have a hole in the center in which a quartz crystal can be placed over a small light bulb. the light shining through clear crystals lights up the crystal and projects and intensifies the colored light and the healing energy of the color and from the crystal .
Light boxes are used with colored filters or gels.
Sometimes people can find or make their own which use stained glass for the color filters . The kind of light bulb that is most like daylight is recommended. Ultra -violet or black light is not recommended for this purpose . Look for a design that allows you to change the filters safely and easily. Make sure that it does not overheat .
Some light boxes are mounted on stands in a way that they can can be tilted or raised and lowered to allow for direction of the light others are fixed and may be used as a meditation focus rather than being used to direct light to specific areas.
Light box crystals can be flat based, single generator crystals or clusters. The main requirement for use as a light box crystal is the ability to reflect light from the base up through the entire crystal. The base of the crystal must be relatively transparent not opaque, quartz crystals that have been cleared .The crystal is placed on the light box over the colored filter in a way that allows the light to be projected towards the client. As the light shines through the colored filter it makes the crystal glow with the color of the filter which you have used.
Crystals with veils and inclusions are often considered preferable to clear glass-like crystals. It is best if possible to clear a crystal that is used in a light box before you use it with another color. Some people like to use one special crystal for all their color healing work others will have a different crystal dedicated to each color that they use.
While specific methods and times for treatment vary from individual it is best to be start out with short exposures to the colored light 5 minutes may be enough at first, later up to 15 minutes is usually quite sufficient .
It is also very healing to place a crystal on one of the light boxes that rotates through the full spectrum of colors in order and meditate or just watch the changing colors.

I use light intuitively and had little experience with crystal light boxes so this chapter is largely based on information from others Particularly from Rhea Hansen of the Kindred Spirits study group of Daly City Ca. The information has held up well and the therapuetic uses of the colors will work with other means than light if that is not available.
There are several pages on color and on working with colored stones in the crystal workshop pages
