Please note that this stone has natural inclusions inside, not on the surface of the stone, that reflect some light - that's what you are seeing in some of the photos. This is ok and is part of the natural beauty of the stone. I am working with Mother Nature and natural stones, therefore exact sizes, shapes and colours vary. I take my photos in natural light to capture the true colour of my pieces. However various computer screens may change the colours.
Ancient legend says that tourmaline can be found in all colours because it travelled along a rainbow and collected all the rainbow's colours. Tourmaline helps with discernment, intuition, insight, and the power of imagination. Medieval shamans considered tourmaline to be ‘receptive’ and to help with mystical and meditative connections. Tourmaline is said to polarize light and attract light bodies. It also attracts sympathy and friendship. It introduces the presence of compassion and wisdom when dealing with others because it promotes flexibility of thought and open-mindedness. Alchemists likened tourmaline to the philosopher’s stone, granting enlightenment and enhancing spiritual connection. Tourmaline is a birthstone for Libra, Taurus and Gemini.
Silver is closely linked to the moon and is a metal of clear light, the psychic mind, loving and healing, wisdom, self-control and reflection. It is said to have calming and cleansing properties while amplifying the energy of any gemstone it comes in contact with. It also symbolizes wealth and prosperity.
Gold’s beauty symbolizes wealth and prosperity. It is also said to facilitate communication between humans and the spiritual world. Gold has been associated with the numinous including the sun, divinity and eternal life throughout history.
