Pink Tourmaline, also called Elbaite, is a variety of Tourmaline that can be found in pale light pink, to bright hot pink. This mineral can be seen in raw, transparent, and opaque formations. It’s commonly found in association with Milky Quartz, and other Tourmaline colours. Do not confuse this stone with Rubellite (Red Tourmaline), although they can be found within the same mines. California has been known to produce some of the most amazing Pink Tourmaline specimens, it is also found in Afghanistan, Brazil, East Africa, Nigeria, Mozambique, and Madagascar.
Pink Tourmaline is a stone for the Heart Chakra, it radiates love, compassion, emotional healing and self love. It helps calm ones emotions in times of distress, and is the perfect stone to carry if you suffer from daily bouts of anxiety, or if you need to heal a broken heart.
Pink Tourmaline carries high healing energies due to it being formed within Quartz. Quartz is a naturally amplifier and will increase the healing energies of any stone placed near it. We regularly recommend Pink Tourmaline to anyone suffering from heavy emotional pain weighing on the heart. For people who have recently gone through a tragedy, heartbreak, loss of a loved one, or simply can't kick that daily depression, Pink Tourmaline is the stone for you.
Wearing Pink Tourmaline will benefit anyone. As with other Tourmalines, it mops up negative energies, cleansing your crystals on a regular basis is recommended. Smudge (sage) and recharge in the moonlight.
