Tourmaline is the alternate birthstone for October, along with the opal. The stone was first discovered by Dutch traders off the West Coast of Italy in the late 1600's or early 1700's. The name tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese term “turmali,” which was the name given to all colored crystals on the island of Sri Lanka at that time. This all inclusive name indicates the inability of ancient gem dealers to differentiate tourmaline from other stones.
MYSTICAL POWERS OF TOURMALINE:
Tourmaline has been said to be good for keeping the digestive system healthy as well as strengthening teeth and bones. It is also recommended for the adrenal disorders and is used by modern practitioners to treat stress and trauma.
Pink tourmaline represents a love of humanity and humanitarianism. It is worn to promote sympathy towards others. It is an excellent stone for healers, therapists and counselors as it allows them to better listen to and understand their patients. It carries the virtue of unconditional love and friendship.
With a hardness of 7 to 7.5 on the Moh's scale, tourmaline is a durable, scratch-resistant stone which is suitable for any kind of jewelry, including rings. Like with most gemstone jewelry, the best way to clean your tourmaline jewelry is with mild soapy water and a soft brush like a child's toothbrush. Never use an ultrasonic cleaner to clean rubellite or paraiba jewelry as it can crack the stone.
