Pink Tourmaline, also called Rubellite, 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 to blue/green), Verdelite (green), Rubellite (pink) and Watermelon (pink with green rind).
Pink Tourmaline (Rubellite) brings cognitive awareness and experience of Universal Love. Rubellite is a very positive crystal, and is supportive of those who work with it, bringing strength during any trials in one's life. It has balancing properties which help one to move away from extremes, and into more equitable emotional and intellectual perspectives. Pink Tourmaline (Rubellite) opens and brings a higher vibration to the Heart Chakra. It is excellent for connecting with the Earth on an emotional level. This connection illuminates the relation between the Earth and Humanity, and helps one to live that relationship in a way that promotes the health of our planet.
Rubellite also works with the Root Chakra, bringing strength, courage, and conviction to endeavors that are based on Love. It helps to gain the courage to overcome issues that hold the heart hostage, such as abusive relationships and negative work situations, and to recognize how why these issues come to be in one's life. Bringing the power to break free of such conditions, Pink Tourmaline (Rubellite) can then provide emotional support for the transitional period when one is learning to live free of these destructive patterns that no longer serve.
Pink Tourmaline can also facilitate the great emotional healing that takes place during and after a breakup, or other loss, but excels at healing old emotional wounds from childhood. Pink Tourmaline can help open up the Heart Chakra of those who have been closed off for years, and ultimately bring the joy back into living. This action improves the overall circulation of energy throughout the subtle bodies and the chakras.
Hi KelleyVisiting that tourmaline mine is deileitnfy on our agenda! We never forgot it from the first moment that you mentioned it.Seeing you and Susan in the store today was awesome! We don't have many friends in America (seeing as we were in Europe for so long) and we're a little sad that we met you and then had to move down to California.The fossil cartel, especially you (and Lars too), were instrumental in igniting a lifelong spark of love for rocks and geological processes you inspired my husband too and for that you have brought even MORE passion to our marriage.Thank you:) I still have not found you on Facebook! I'll keep trying. Tara Lucy Hicks and Jordan Tennessee Hicks (Submitted by: Auth on July 31, 2012)
