Tourmalines are one of the most captivating crystal collections around. They have a rich and varied color palette that can be used to create any number of beautiful pieces, from earrings or pendants all way up to large figurines sought after by collectors. Black tourmaline has been known as “the king” among these stones due to its sharp crystal forms.

Tourmaline can show different colors in different crystal directions which makes it highly sought after. In addition, many tourmalines absorb more light down the length of the crystal than across it. So a crystal that appears pale green across its length can be very dark green—sometimes almost black—when you look down its length.

The confusion about the stone’s identity is even reflected in its name, which comes from toramalli, which means “mixed gems” in Sinhalese.

Tourmalines come in a wide variety of exciting colors. In fact, tourmaline has one of the widest color ranges of any gem species, occurring in various shades of virtually every hue.


Varities of Tourmalines

Rubellite is a name for pink, red, purplish-red, orangy red, or brownish red tourmaline, although some in the trade argue that the term shouldn’t apply to pink tourmaline.
Indicolite is dark violetish blue, blue, or greenish-blue tourmaline.
Paraíba is an intense violetish blue, greenish-blue, or blue tourmaline from the state of Paraíba, Brazil.
Chrome tourmaline is intense green. In spite of its name, it’s colored mostly by vanadium, the same element that colors many Brazilian and African emeralds.
Parti-colored tourmaline displays more than one color. One of the most common combinations is green and pink, but many others are possible.
Watermelon tourmaline is pink in the center and green around the outside. Crystals of this material are typically cut in slices to display this particular arrangement.

Tourmaline Crystal and Human Feelings

Tourmalines are amazing stones that can take your negative thoughts and turn them into positive ones. The Tourmaline family has a lot of experience with this, as they tend to focus on chakras like the heart or base crystal concentrations in order for their healing properties to work best.

Green Tourmalines are the perfect stone to help you practice self-compassion.

Black Tourmalines are one of nature’s most powerful healers. They cut through anxiety like a hot knife through butter, but they also boost your clarity and energy levels too!

Tourmaline Crystal and Human Mind

Tourmalines are powerful mental healers that can change negative energy into positive. They help treat paranoia, dyslexia, and hand/eye coordination problems by balancing right versus left brain activity; these properties make it a great crystal for anyone who has struggled with these traits in the past!


Tourmaline Crystal and Human Spirit

Tourmalines are a stone of protection and guidance during rituals. They can be used to scry, bringing you clarity about your future or past and their strong affinity with Devic energies makes them beneficial as well! If placed near doors/ windows it will keep insects away while encouraging plant growth; buried in the soil these stones act like natural pesticides that protect against pests without harming other animals.


Tourmaline Crystals and Chakras

The chakras are a person’s internal energy centers and they’re aligned vertically near the spine. Energy enters your body through what we call “head” (heaven) or base(earth). The seven main points of intersection where these forces mingle create different patterns which can be seen as vibrant colors within our own being; each producing its own signature color-coded aura to represent health concerns such as stress levels, moods, etc… These vortexes were created so that all might share both physical spaces.  The chakras are in constant interaction with one another. They cannot really be separated, and serve as a balance to your entire being – both physical aspects like emotions or personality traits but also more abstract ones such as thoughts about yourself (think: beliefs).

Two extra chakras have recently been discovered by ancient yogic studies; the Earth Star Chakra and Soul-Star Chi. I have included a brief description of these on my page for you to learn more about them!


Tourmaline Crystals and Auric Bodies

  • Physical
  • Etheric
  • Astral
  • Mental
  • Picture


Human beings have seven bodies, one physical and six nonphysical. The six unseen bodies are known as auras.

The physical body and the six nonphysical bodies are interconnected with each other. The health of any or all auras contributes toward the overall physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of a person.

Auras, also known as energy bodies, are affected by all aspects of your life and the energy that feeds them comes from internal and external sources.  You’ll need high-quality prana or chi flowing into them to ensure the health of these energy bodies.

Physical Body

  • this is the body that you live in and is linked to the Base Chakra.

Etheric Body

  • a blueprint for the physical body and is made up of vibrating energy.  It’s linked to the Sacral Chakra.

Astral Body

  • your emotions reside here. It is comprised of different colors that are constantly changing based on how you feel.  Emotional experiences are also stored in the astral body and is linked to the Solar Plexus Chakra.

Mental Body

  • is made up of two parts, the lower and the higher. The lower mental body is linked to the solar plexus chakra, while the higher mental body is linked to the heart chakra.
    The lower mental body is where you do your everyday thinking. It is the mind that you use to reason, form mental arguments, create thought forms, and memorize things. The lower mental body is tied to your personality.   For example, thinking negatively will eventually permeate into the physical body.  Therefore changing your negative thought patterns can often change your mental health for the better.

As your spirituality develops you’ll raise your consciousness and it is through this pathway you’ll be able to tap into the One Mind.  The “One Mind” contains all information.  By opening your higher mental body you’ll receive moments of knowledge that flow to you.
