Tourmaline’s Complex Rainbow
Tourmaline is a complex group of minerals. The slightest change in the mineral composition can create a completely different set of colors. Known for its vast array of colors, it is also has the property of exhibiting different colors by reflected or transmitted light (dichroism). Tourmaline exhibits pyro-electricity, becoming electrically charged when heated, then cooled, giving them a positive charge at one end and a negative charge at the other. They also become charged under pressure, changing the polarity, creating an oscillation of the stone.
Cleansing & Charging Tourmaline
~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.
~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy. A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.
