Change socket color by using the Chromatic Orb

The official GamePedia page of Path of Exile lists the Chromatic Orb as the currency item used to change the socket color.

Using this item can give players a chance to re-roll the color of their sockets. There are currently four available socket colors in the game.

Red is associated with strength. Blue is for intelligence. Green is for dexterity. The last one, which is white, is not associated with any character ability aspect.

Although the white ones can only be obtained through corruption and by using a Vaal orb at a 25% chance rate. And it is considered the most powerful socket color.
