Rubellite Tourmaline GemstoneRubellite 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.

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. 

All forms of tourmaline are thought to balance the left and right hand sides of the brain, harmonizing rational thought with intuitive insights. Tourmaline helps release victim consciousness and maintain a sense of humor, faith and confidence in the reality of one's own inner vision.
Common tourmaline is black, and the other striking colors, such as blue or red 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. 

As with all of our crystals, this has been cleaned, cleared & charged with Reiki energies, sun (or moon as is appropriate to the stone), color & prayer and love and comes to you ready to use with reverence for our Mother Earth.
