Self-love • Emotional Healing • Cognizance
First discovered by Dutch traders off the coast of Italy, the name “Tourmaline” comes from the Sinhalese term “turmali” – the given name to all colored crystals found on the island of Sri Lanka at the time.
They have been said to aid the healing of angina and to help anyone recovering from serious heart related health problems.
These crystals are a Libra and Sagittarius birthstone, so this makes them popular stones for jewelry.
Deposits have been found in Afghanistan, Africa, Brazil and the USA, with some of the best stones coming from California. The pink stones vary from a pale pink to a deep rose pink almost red color.
