Green tourmaline ranges in color from the palest green to dark green verging on black. In the middle of this spectrum is lustrous, translucent apple green tourmaline. Oh, how I love this color and quality of tourmaline and how frustrating it has been to get it at a reasonable price. Recently we got “first picks” on a new lot of Brazilian green tourmaline with a great price! This translates to beautiful terminated crystals at a reasonable cost for you (approximately $50–$185). We also have stunning pieces from Afghanistan, even a few in pendants, as well as some darker green Brazilian pieces.

When I hold a piece of this new apple green tourmaline it feels like an energy conduit, providing a shaft-like directional flow of Light, to enhance expansion and growth. When I read Melody and Katrina Raphael, I find that I’m right on track, or is it the tourmaline that’s on track?!

All tourmaline has an intrinsic ability to raise the vibration of that which it is near to, due to its inherent electrical flow. This is accomplished via the vertical lines of striation that run through the crystal. Tourmaline has been used in many cultures throughout the history of the planet for its healing and protective powers as well as for providing one direction towards that which brings “good” and awakening of the self. Katrina Raphael says the message of tourmaline is: “Align yourself with the force of Light and channel that radiance onto your world and into your life”.

Green tourmaline is a healer on all levels, purifying and strengthening the nervous system to enable one to integrate higher levels of consciousness. It is useful for everything that is growing – from plants to us – reminding us that we are one as we exchange energies and vibratory messages with other forms of life. It relieves chronic fatigue and exhaustion supporting the growth of success, creativity, and abundance. Its continuous ability to rejuvenate makes it one of the most favorable green life-giving stones available.
