|Properties Of Rubellite (Red Tourmaline)|
Tourmaline belongs to a complex family of aluminum borosilicates mixed with iron, magnesium, or other various metals that, depending on the proportions of its components, may form as red, pink, yellow, brown, black, green, blue or violet. Its prismatic, vertically striated crystals may be long and slender, or thick and columnar, and are uniquely triangular in cross-section. They often vary in coloration within a single specimen, lengthwise or in cross sections, and may be transparent or opaque. One of Tourmaline’s most distinguishing properties is its ability to become electrically charged simply by heating or rubbing it. When charged, one end becomes positive and the other negative, allowing it to attract particles of dust or bits of paper. This property was well-known to the Dutch traders of the 1700s who used Tourmaline to pull ash from their Meerschaum pipes, calling the stone Aschentrekker, or ash puller.
In the home or office, Rubellite Tourmaline helps neutralize the harmful effects of microwaves, computers and other electronics. It deters people from picking fights or disputing your expertise, and helps bestow dignity, diplomacy and quiet authority when others are being unreasonable or pulling rank. Rubellite strengthens the ability to understand love, and promotes creativity in ways to put love out into the world. It assists one in being lively and sociable, but also encourages tactfulness and flexibility. Rubellite may be used for harmonizing the feminine energies within both sexes, and lends strength to women in emotional challenges.
Tourmaline is a versatile stone and can be used in most rituals and spellworkings without upsetting the energy balance of other stones present. If you handle your pieces of tourmaline often they become extremely sensitive to your vibrations and rapidly respond to whatever you are doing.
