pink tourmaline specimenPink Tourmaline (also known as Rubellite or Red Tourmaline) is known for its ability to dispel energetic imbalances within the heart. By connecting with the heart and base chakras, this crystal helps remove energetic obstacles so that one can firmly ground themselves and open their heart to human and universal love. It is a popular choice for establishing a healthy, positive relationship with the Earth and its inhabitants. This stone can also support those recovering from emotional abuse.

Historical Folklore

The name Tourmaline comes from an ancient Sinhalese word turmali, meaning “a mixed color precious stone,” or turamali, meaning “something small from the earth.”

The name “rubellite” stems from this crystal’s red color, which is similar to ruby.

Tourmaline was once referred to as a “Ceylonese magnet” for its electrical properties.

The Dutch referred to this stone as “ash mover” for its apparent ability to attract or repel ash when placed near a fire.

Sometimes, when pink tourmaline forms near green tourmaline, a hybrid of the two colors forms. The newly created stone is called Watermelon Tourmaline.

Red Tourmaline and Pink Tourmaline are commonly considered to be the same stone with very similar (if not identical) properties. They are both referred to as Rubellite.

Geology

The tourmaline family is classified as boron silicate minerals. All stones in this family has a similar crystal structure and chemical makeup but come in a variety of colors. These crystals can be black, brown, green, pink, red, yellow, blue, blue-green, and “watermelon”. Pink tourmaline is found in Russia, Afghanistan, Brazil, Madagascar, Nigeria, and the United States.

Chakra Association

Pink Tourmaline resonates with the base, sacral, heart, seed, and higher heart chakras.

Care

You can place pink tourmaline in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.

Astrological Association
