Pink Tourmaline Gemstone

The  name  Tourmaline  comes  from  the  Sinhalese word “turamali” which means “mixed precious stones”.  In the gem trade (due to its almost electrifying colour) the pink variety of  Tourmaline is often known as “Shocking Pink Tourmaline”.

This gem is often confused with other gems. Indeed,  the  Russian  Crown  Jewels  were thought to contain beautiful large Rubies but they turned out to be dark Pink Tourmalines. Its sensual colour occurs because it is rich in lithium. 

The Empress Dowager Tz’u, the last empress of China, loved Pink Tourmaline so much she went to rest eternally on a pillow carved from Pink Tourmaline.

When women wear Pink Tourmaline, it is said  to empower; it also  said to help in reaching  one’s full potential.
