Light Pink Tourmaline (Elbaite) helps us with our creativity and for creating new things without losing your connection to All That Is. This crystal works on the Heart Chakra and the Crown Chakra, connecting you strongly to pure love in a spiritiual sense (love of All That Is). Also working through the Heart Chakra, it brings you joy of life and peace as you walk down your spiritual pathway, especially during the times of change that come with walking this pathway helping you work towards the ultimate goal of enlightenment. This crystal encourages the heart to be all it can be in a high spiritual sense--bringing you faith and trust, awareness of All That Is, joy, and to being to know what true unconditional love is. This crystal is invaluable for awakening the heart to its true purpose.
There is more Lithium in the pink Tourmalines than there is in Lepidolite, so these crystals are ultra-soothing and help you to release stress.
Tourmaline comes in many colors with many names, and the Chakra colors are all represented and then some! The rarest color of Tourmaline is white/clear, called Achroite. This crystal clears and activates all of the Chakras and all layers of the aura. It helps with fear by ushering in knowledge, and, with knowledge, comes understanding. All negativity is based in fear. Tourmaline gets the left and right sides of the brain communicating in a much better fashion. It helps you to see that being a victim is a huge waste of time and get beyond it.
Tourmaline is the only crystal which can gather and send electrical energy/static energy/"universal" energy, according to my jeweler friend in the Czech Republic. Any change in temperature makes incredible energy charge changes in Tourmaline. Tourmalines are able to gather and send energy from the “C” axis (the long axis of the crystal). Energy is sent in one direction only, so the energy charge is completely controlled by the person handling the crystal. For an experiment, have some fine ash handy. Heat up the crystal a little and watch the ash stick to the end of the crystal where the energy is the strongest. This crystal is frequently used by German and Bohemian healers.
