Cotton Candy Tourmaline

Tourmaline Meaning and Healing Properties

Tourmalines are a large group of borosilicate minerals. Many tourmalines are elbaites, which are multi-colored minerals rich in sodium, aluminum, lithium and occasionally copper. They are adored for their array of beautiful colors causes by a huge variety of chemical compositions and color zoning. When conditions change during the formation of tourmaline crystals it can cause two or more colors to occur on a single crystal. Tourmaline crystals are pyroelectric, piezoelectric, and produce negative ions. This makes Tourmaline a very powerful stone to wear and keep in your space to create positive energy.

The word Tourmaline is derived from the Sinhalese (language of Sri Lanka) word "Toramalli" which means “mixed gems”. Dutch merchants used this word to describe the multicolored pebbles that miners found in the gem gravels of Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). Ancient Egyptian legend describes Tourmaline crystals traveling up from the center of the Earth along a rainbow, gathering the diverse array of colors as they journeyed to the heavens. Magicians living in the Andes mountains used Tourmaline to create magical staffs to access the ancient knowledge of the Earth. Ancient Indian ceremonies used Tourmaline crystals to attain enlightenment and peace.

Tourmaline colors include black, blue, green, yellow, pink, red, orange, purple, brown, and colorless.

Hardness: 7-7.5

Care: Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and heat which can cause the crystal to lose color or fracture.

Feng Shui Placement: Can be placed in various rooms according to the Bagua map or in specific places of a room by intention/color. I always recommend keeping a piece of Black Tourmaline at every entry point of the house, in all four corners of the home and all rooms.

Use + Crystal pairings

Tourmalines are always in my favorite crystal pairings! Tourmalines have a wide range of healing combinations possible due to their variety of chemical formulas.

Selenite + Black Tourmaline

This pairing is perfect for energetic cleansing. Clear any negative or stagnant energy by combining the aura with Selenite. Black Tourmaline will ground and transmute energy.

Flower Agate + Pink Tourmaline

A beautiful pairing for opening it up to love  and embracing your true identity. It's extremely supportive of promoting self-esteem and self-acceptance.

Morganite + Watermelon Tourmaline

Helps gently heal any traumas and is particularly supportive when healing the inner child. Morganite and Watermelon Tourmaline have a beautiful synchronistic energy that uplift you during the healing work.

Affirmation: Affirmation: I am free from all negative attachments.
