Blue Tourmaline, also known as Indicolite, belongs to a group called Elbaite, which is a member of the Tourmaline family. Elbaite is by far the most colorful group, including Indicolite (blue), Verdelite (green), Rubellite (pink) and Watermelon (pink with green rind).
Blue Tourmaline is often used to enhance communication by enabling you to speak honestly and through the heart. It is a stone of compassion, and helps one to be more open-minded. Blue Tourmaline can open up communication with higher realms, and helps one find the cause of illness. By concentrating on the Third Eye, Blue Tourmaline can increase perception, intuition and psychic abilities. Like all Tourmalines, Blue Tourmaline is a metaphysically protective stone which is said to balance and harmonize the chakras.
Physically, Blue Tourmaline eases insomnia and helps relieve problems associated with the eyes, throat, larynx, thyroid, adrenal and pituitary glands. It can also balance fluid in the body and eases bladder and kidney ailments.
In general, Tourmaline can become electrically charged as a result of heat or pressure, which is a testament to the ability of these crystals to impact one’s energy field. Tourmaline is very grounding and helpful in releasing stress and tension.
