Dravite, also known as Brown Tourmaline, is a sodium magnesium member of the Tourmaline family. The origin of the name comes from the Drava River area in Slovenia, in which the stone was first discovered in 1884. Its colour ranges from dark brown, to a light brown-yellow with semi-translucent crystals almost resembling Smoky Quartz. The best, and presumably rarest Dravite specimens come from the mines located in Yinnietharra, Australia. Other localities include mainly Brazil, Mexico, and Canada.
Dravite is a very strong grounding stone that raises one’s stamina, life force, and protective energies. Stimulating and balancing the Root and the Heart Chakras, Dravite clears negative energies and allows love and peace to flow freely throughout your body. This stone is here to calm and soothe your mind so that you may think and act with a level head. Dravite urges us to fully ground ourselves into the physical plane with an open heart that is eager to love, yet always protected. Its a very protective stone over your aura, and provides a barrier between other people’s energy and your own. We recommend carrying this with you if you know your going into an environment where there may be a lot of sick people or around strangers.
Highly recommended for anyone dealing with sudden trauma or grief. Meditate with Dravite and carry with you. When going through a lot of emotions, remember to cleanse your crystal daily, as it pulls out negative energies and may end up carrying some itself. Simply smudge (sage) and allow the moon to recharge your crystal.
Meditate with a combination of Dravite and Rose Quartz to enhance healing energies to the heart. Hold the Rose Quartz over your heart and the Dravite in your non-dominant hand. Allow the crystals to melt away the emotional stress from your Heart and gently ground you.
Meditate with a combination of Dravite and Moldavite for a transformative experience. The combination will create an impenetrable barrier of your Aura and therefore complete protection. Moldavite is used for communication with beings from other planets.
