The Orbs of the Rainbow
Orbs have been around for a long time, but were relatively uncommon until digital cameras came along. They've now become almost routine, and on our Ghost Hunters of Asheville Downtown Tour, someone's camera captures them at nearly every haunted stop. Although most orbs are white, orbs can be found in every color of the spectrum.
Orb Color Theory (OCT) is yet a very unprecise science, but paranormalists have developed charts detailing the emotional status of a spirit or ghost according to the color of their orb. To determine these correlations, paranormalists have "interviewed" spirits regarding the meanings of the colors.
Above is a detailed color chart associating various colors with their associated meanings. More examples and information can be found on http://www.moonspenders.com/orbcolors.htm.
