TOURMALINE

The name Tourmaline comes from the Singhalese words “turamali”, which loosely translates to “stone with mixed colors”. Tourmaline comes in every color of the rainbow and according to old Egyptian legend, tourmaline, on its long journey up from the center of the Earth, passed over a rainbow and assumed all the rainbow colors.
Tourmalines are one of the most powerful and healing gemstones. The resonant energy of tourmaline relates to each of the chakras according to its color. It can be used to attract inspiration, diminish fear by promoting understanding, and encourages self-confidence. It acts to clear, maintain and stimulate each of the energy centers of the body. Tourmaline provides a balancing of male/female energies within the body and further provides balancing of the mind. It is thought to bring healing powers to the user and to provide protection from all dangers occurring on the physical plane.
