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.
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 used tourmaline 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.
Black tourmaline provides a feeling of protection, shielding the bearer from unwanted energies in the environment, while directing energy to the root chakra, helping to ground and center the bearer, assisting in the overcoming of paranoia, low self-worth, and feelings of alienation.
Black tourmaline helps to stimulate the flow of energy in the energy channels running up the spine, grounds us by connecting our root chakra with the Source of kundalini energy that resides in the center of the earth, and can stimulate and balance the energy system in the physical body and the auric field.
Purple tourmaline resonates with the crown chakra, and activates the Higher Mind, helping to establish a connection between the egoistic personality and the Higher Self.
Watermelon tourmaline is an extremely rare multi-colored gemstone with a blue-green rind and a reddish-pink core. This particular specimen also has amazing apple-green highlights on the termination tip.
Metaphysically speaking, green tourmaline is an excellent stone used to open the heart chakra, imparting a feeling of love, peace, serenity & deep compassion for all living beings. Green tourmaline, also known as a Brazilian Emerald, is associated with the heart chakra. Green tourmaline helps us to see with the heart, to combine a masculine strength with compassionate creativity, and to facilitate the study and practice of agriculture and herbalism for nurturing and healing. Wear this color to help when communicating with devas and nature spirits. In addition, green tourmaline is said to help connect the heart with the third eye, facilitating clairvoyance and fostering a deep experience of Unity with Universal Creation.
Blue tourmaline is associated with the throat chakra, and assists the bearer in connecting with his or her own individual truth and destiny, in communicating their own personal truth to others, and in achieving success in all endeavors related to mass communication.
In addition, blue-green tourmaline assists the bearer in opening the doorways to spiritual worlds, and to connecting with Higher Mind and Higher Self, facilitating inner conversation with one's own Personal Guardian Angel.
