Tourmaline helps us to become aware of our place in the Universe and in society. It commits us to righteousness, both on the spiritual level (honesty, fidelity, etc.) and on the physical level. It is a stone that greatly promotes balance and therefore, to keep the upright position. It will particularly help children who are learning to walk, the elderly who have difficulty moving around, the disabled, people in rehabilitation, convalescents for whom standing is difficult.


In addition to its general qualities which make Tourmaline an essential stone in the field of Lithotherapy, each of the varieties conveys particular properties according to their color.

Black Tourmaline (Schorl)


Also called Schorl because of its charcoal color, it is the most famous of the Tourmalines. Favorite stone of the root chakra , it is for me  a key stone in Lithotherapy. In addition to being an excellent protection stone, Black Tourmaline is also  "  THE  » anchor stone par excellence.  It promotes deep rooting in the Earth and  aligns all Chakras.  


It immediately increases the vibratory rate of those who are regularly in contact with it and greatly promotes our balance, acting as a powerful bulwark against all that is negative. It is also very often used during difficult life passages, so as not to enter a vicious circle of negativity. Its striated structure on the surface also allows us to channel the energies that we send around us.

This variety of Tourmaline is  essential in all meditation work. Its powerful radiation penetrates our most resistant blockages, thereby promoting  the return to consciousness. It also allows  to refocus the mind, thus helping people who are a little too often  in the moon  ".  It is also effective against anxiety, neuroses, fatigue, anemia and insomnia. Associated with an Amethyst stone and a Rose Quartz ,  it offers a deep and restorative sleep.


Black Tourmaline cleanses, purifies and transforms dense energy into a lighter vibration. She  can be carried on your person to protect yourself from negative energies, but also from pollution of electromagnetic origins (TV, computers, telephones, wifi, microwaves, etc.) . This stone deflects all bad energies towards the Earth, which then transforms them into good energies. 

In geobiology, it would also be the most effective stone for the protection of a place of life, it is enough to place 4 Tourmalines  on each floor, at the 4 corners of the house (cardinal points) .


To know  : Black Tourmaline is very rich in iron, so it charges much longer than others.


Purification: Pure water, salt water, fumigation, earth, scallop shell, clay
Black Tourmaline does not necessarily have  needs to be purified a lot, because it does not absorb negative energies.

Reload: Sun  (Preference: daylight) , Rock Crystal Cluster


Achroite Tourmaline


The Achroite Tourmaline is a colorless Tourmaline, it still has some traces of color such as pink or red. This stone is directly connected to the chakra  crown which it strongly activates. Achroite Tourmaline has the same properties as the blue, green and melon variety.

Blue Tourmaline ( Indicolite)


Blue Tourmaline is a fairly rare stone. Its lagoon blue color makes it particularly unique and magnificent. Affixed to the Crown Chakra, it encourages tolerance and helps to understand the benefits of living in harmony with others.  On the Third Eye Chakra, it particularly promotes intelligence and creativity.  Associated with the Throat Chakra, this stone strengthens the energy of the thymus, larynx, thyroid and lungs.  This makes Blue Tourmaline a healing stone to be used against certain illnesses, where the immune system needs to be strongly stimulated.  Finally, on the Heart Chakra, it dispels the sadness and all the negativity that there is in us, giving us a lot of strength and courage.  It is also a favorable stone for  shy and complexed, because it removes inhibitions and helps them overcome their fears. 

melon tourmaline  (Elbaite)

Just like the Kunzite is a very powerful antidepressant. Affixed to the Chakra of the third eye, it strengthens memory, stimulates the imagination and acts against vertigo and dizziness. Finally, like its sister Blue Tourmaline, it strengthens our immune defenses and thus prevents the development of diseases.

Red Tourmaline has practically the same properties as its sister, Melon Tourmaline.  It activates the Chakras  from root to heart.  It powerfully stimulates the Heart Chakra, thus facilitating the expression of our feelings.  It relieves panic attacks and promotes the healing of our emotional wounds.  It is a stone that inspires peace and wisdom.  Red Tourmaline also strengthens our immune defenses, protects our venous system, promotes good blood circulation, relieves pre-menopause and harmonizes sexuality.

green tourmaline  (Verdelite)


Green Tourmaline is a very powerful healing stone, it acts both on the body and on the mind.  Affixed to the heart chakra, it realigns and opens all the chakras, thus promoting the elevation of our vibrational frequency.  It promotes good intestinal transit and greatly stimulates our immune defenses, which makes it a particularly valuable ally in different types of cancers and diseases.  It is a stone that also acts directly on the brain and nerve endings, which helps to channel people with uncontrollable behaviors  (epilepsy, dementia, mood disorders, hyperactivity...).  Affixed to the third eye chakra, it stimulates imagination and creativity.  On the heart chakra, it facilitates conflicting relationships.  Finally, Green Tourmaline is also a stone that develops the senses and more particularly the sense of touch, smell and taste.
