Gemstone of the Day – Tourmaline

Gemstone of the Day – Tourmaline

Tourmaline is often referred to as the rainbow gemstone, due to the huge amout of colors that it is available in. This was certainly believed by the ancient Egyptians who believed that when Tourmaline traveled from its home in the earth’s core to the surface, it did so along a rainbow, which subsequently gifted the gemstone with all of the colors of the rainbow.

Tourmaline is the excellent channeling stone for communication with higher forces. Tourmaline helps to break up energy blockage, which we mentally experience as anxiety, stress or confusion. This stone clears higher frequencies, effectively as it forms a protective shield all over the body (Aura).

All tourmalines are said to enhance understanding, increase self-confidence and amplify psychic energies. They are told to neutralize negative energies, dispel fear and grief as well as aid in concentration and communication.

Tourmaline helps you to move beyond limited thinking, to an expanded sense of reality, and see past experiences in new ways. It teaches us that we are light beings in physical form, and helps us to experience the physical and spiritual worlds as one.
