This lovely Rubellite Tourmaline Oval Cabachon Pendant vibrates with a rosy translucence bringing in harmony to soothe, heal & express love throughout the auric field.
It is set into a sterling silver setting which allows the stone to breathe, and hangs on its sterling silver chain right on the thymus, at the heart chakra, offering protection to the whole body resonating through the compassionate heart. We often recommend that our Reiki and past life therapy clients wear crystals or gemstones for protection.
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.
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 a magnificent ruby violet shade and it resonates with the heart and base chakras, assisting in grounding the energies of love & devotion. It can intensify any loving practices whether they are directed toward ones own health or in the spiritual practices of devotion.
And so purple, being a combination of the blue & the red would also have the qualities of those two rays, as well as assisting one in connecting to the crown chakra, for spiritual cleansing, which is one of the qualities of the violet ray.
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. To cleanse your crystal, simply place it under running water, preferably in nature, while saying a prayer and focusing your intent on the clearing process. Then, to charge your pendant, place the crystal in a safe place in the sun for a short time and charge it with whatever it is you want it to do for you.
