Tourmaline is the name given to a family of minerals forming hard, slender vertically striated prismatic crystals, often hexagonal, trigonal or rhombohedral in shape, with a high specific gravity, classified as complex aluminum borosilicate. Tourmaline is an igneous mineral that commonly forms in granites and granitic pegmatites.
Over the last decade, tourmaline has become one of the most prized gemstones among mineral collectors, joining the ranks of the most prized gemstones, like diamonds, rubies and emeralds.
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.
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.
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 and base chakras, 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.
