Tourmaline is classed as a semi-precious stone and can be found in a wide range of colors. Brightly colored examples of this gemstone were brought to Europe by the Futch East India Company as there was a great demand for gems and curiosities. It was often called the Ceylonese Magnet as it has pyroelectric properties that mean it can attract then repel hot ashes. In the 19th century, it was used by chemists to polarize light.
Tourmaline is the most colorful of gemstones and can be found in a range of colors, from pink to black. Tourmaline is renowned in the world of crystal healing for its ability to aid in the detoxification of the human body, and is one of only a few minerals that are able to emit negative ions and far-infrared rays. This ability means tourmaline is perfect for gentle healing, soothing, stimulating and detoxing the physical body and the mind. It is also used for gently increasing blood flow because it expands capillaries and promotes oxygenation and regeneration of the body.
