Properties of Tourmaline
Tourmaline is the name given to a family of minerals forming hard, slender vertically striated prismatic crystals, often hexagonal or rhombohedral in shape, with a high specific gravity, classified as complex aluminum borosilicate.
Like quartz, tourmaline crystals will generate an electrical charge when pressure is applied in the direction of the vertical axis. This is called piezoelectricity. In addition, some tourmaline will generate an electrical charge when heated.
Tourmaline is the birthstone for the month of October and the Zodiacal sign of Libra. In ancient Hindu tradition, the tourmaline is a stone of motivation, which impels the wearer toward the good, and a "teller" stone that gives insight in times of duress and can identify sources of distress in the wearer's environment.
Shamanic practitioners in African, Native American and Aboriginal tribes have used tourmaline for centuries to provide protection from physical danger and to amplify healing powers.
Common tourmaline is black, and the lighter colors, such as blue and light green, are much more rare. The colors in the stones are created by the presence of various metallic ions such as iron, titanium, chromium, and others. The various colors of tourmaline are associated with the seven primary chakras within the human aura.
Pink tourmaline is said by crystal healers to facilitate the connection of the heart and crown chakras, enabling the bearer to achieve a state of true loving wisdom in all they say and do.
Pink tourmaline is a powerful Ascension stone because this lovely gem aligns the bearer's rational mind with Higher Mind, while opening the heart, and thus creates a state of being which is conducive to the attainment of Unity Consciousness.
Blue tourmaline connects the Bearer with Higher Mind and Higher Purpose, allowing us to unify the compassion of the open heart with the clarity of Higher Mind, and to experience the flow of Loving Wisdom that comes to us from the Queen of Heaven.
