Mineralogical and Metaphysical 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.
Rubellite or Red Tourmaline, relating to the astrological sign of Scorpio & Sagittarius, is associated with the root chakra, and helps ground and center the bearer, assisting in the overcoming of paranoia, low self-worth, and feelings of alienation. Red tourmaline exhibits a magnificent ruby violet shade and resonates with the heart chakra, assisting in grounding the energies of love & devotion. It can intensify any loving practices whether directed toward ones own health or in the spiritual practices of devotion.
This tourmaline pendant has been cleansed and charged with Universal Life Force Energy, using Vogel crystal wands, Reiki attunement and the healing energies of color and aromatherapy.
