Tourmaline, The Stone of Many Colors

Tourmaline healing crystals are used to cleanse and purify.  The healing properties of Tourmaline transform dense, heavy energy into higher vibrational energy.

Many healers wear a tourmaline ring to protect against other people's "negative" energy. 

About Tourmaline

The name Tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese (Sri Lanka) word thoramalli, which translates as the stone of mixed colors. This is the perfect description of this multi-colored crystal group!  

Tourmaline's different colors include: Black Tourmaline (Schorl), Blue Tourmaline (Indicolite), Brown Tourmaline (Dravide), Colorless Tourmaline (Achroite), Green Tourmaline (Verdelite), Rainbow Tourmaline (Elbaite), Pink Tourmaline, Red Tourmaline (Rubellite), Watermelon Tourmaline, and Yellow Tourmaline.

These crystals  are 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs’ scale of hardness. Tourmaline has pyroelectric properties and was sometimes called the "Ceylonese [Sri Lankan] Magnet" because it could attract and then repel hot ashes.
