This highly prized gemstone assists us to assimilate new knowledge while remaining true to our own highest nature. Aquamarine helps judgemental people to become more tolerant by reinforcing the connection with the Higher Self while clarifying mental activity of all kinds. It is a stone which encourages flow, balance, protection & clarity, attuning us to spiritual worlds while enhancing the connections between our intellectual, emotional and spiritual bodies.
Because of its blue-green color, aquamarine is associated with the throat chakra, which is said to be blue or turquoise in the Western chakra system.
Aquamarine stimulates, energizes, and cleanses the throat chakra, facilitating communications activities of all kinds, and strengthening the connection between the throat chakra and the third eye chakra, infusing our communications with the wisdom and love found in the Higher Self when the third eye is fully activated.
Aquamarine is the gemstone of communication par excellence, and an excellent gemstone for anyone connected with the mass media or networked computing, or working on the Internet.

Properties of Pink 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 used tourmaline to provide protection from physical danger and to amplify healing powers.
Common tourmaline is black, and the lighter colors, such as blue, 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 to energize the heart chakra, which can be either green or pink in the Western chakra system.
Pink tourmaline promotes female balance and invokes the protection of the Great Mother while expressing the energy of unconditional love.
Pink tourmaline has been used by healers to help in the treatment of disorders of the endocrine system, and to soothe the wounded psyche, induce peaceful sleep, banish unwelcome dreams, and provide an overall balm to the wearer's body, mind and spirit.
