Introduction to Meaning and Uses of Green Tourmaline

Green Tourmaline, also known as Verdelite,

is perhaps Nature’s best healing crystal

of the physical heart, channeling its electrical energies

into the center of one’s being and creating a flow of

wholesome energy to all parts of the body and self. It is

the masculine, or yang counterpart to the feminine

heart energies of Pink Tourmaline, and enhances

courage and strength, stamina and vitality.

Its spiritual

vibrations harmonize with the energies of the Earth as it

opens the Heart Chakra and stimulates a strong

resonance with Divine Love. [Simmons 410][Ahsian, 411]

Ranging in hue from pale light green to darkest

emerald, sometimes in shades of olive, Green

Tourmaline is a gateway stone to the devic realm and

provides beneficial influence to all things that live and


It may be used in meditation to commune with

Nature spirits, and to connect physically with the spirits

of plants and animals. Its rejuvenating qualities make it

the most favorable of all the green life-giving stones. [Simmons 410][Raphaell 130]

Although Tourmaline may be found on every continent,

fine crystal specimens and gems are still considered

rare and can be quite expensive. Its vast popularity as a

gemstone began in 1876, when mineralogist and

jeweler George Kunz sold a Green Tourmaline from

Maine to the famous Tiffany and Co. in New York, and

its desirability spread. More recently it has become a

favorite of metaphysical collectors and practitioners for

its versatile energy properties. [Simmons 406]

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. The name Tourmaline comes from an

ancient Sinhalese word turmali, meaning “a mixed color

precious stone,” or turamali, meaning “something small

from the earth.”[Mella 110][Simmons, 406][Megemont, 182]

Green Tourmaline is beneficial in one’s physical being.

Together they link to the higher self, and are believed to

bring true joy to one’s life and relationships. [Simmons 410-411][Melody, 660][Hall, 302-303]

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 of

pyroelectricity (from heat) or piezoelectricity (from

pressure or rubbing) 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.” [Simmons, 406]

Green Tourmaline Uses and Purposes - Overview

Green Tourmaline attracts luck, success, abundance

and prosperity. It inspires creativity, and may be used to

project, create and manifest one’s goals. It might also

increase one’s opportunities to earn a second income

by turning an interest or hobby into a business. [Raphaell, 130][Eason, 288]

[Melody 657]

As a stone of energy and stamina, Green Tourmaline is

excellent for sports persons and athletes, and anyone in

occupations where rigorous activity is required. [Eason, 288]

Green Tourmaline carries the essence of the plant

kingdom, and is conducive to the healing of plants and

in helping gardens flourish. It supports the study and

practice of herbalism, and increases the effectiveness

of herbs and plants in our healing. [Melody, 656-657][Simmons, 410][Hall, 300]

Green Tourmaline assists in overcoming emotional

problems associated with a father figure or other male

forces in one’s life. [Melody, 657][Hall, 300]

Tourmaline is a shamanic stone, providing protection

during ritual work. It can be used for scrying, and was

traditionally used to point out a cause of trouble or an

offender, and to indicate a good direction in which to

move. [Hall 297]

Tourmaline strengthens the sense of smell, and in that

respect, can also enhance the perception of

pheromones which produces an aphrodisiac effect. [Megemont,

1 4]

Tourmaline is specifically used to treat motion sickness.

It may also assist in restoring luster and shine to hair

and nails.[Megemont, 184]

In industry, Tourmalines are highly valued as electrical

tuning circuits for conducting television and radio

frequencies. They are used for their durability since

high frequencies can be passed through them without

shattering, as many crystals do.
