TOURMALINE

GENERAL PROPERTIES

The keyword for this crystal is Alignment. Tourmaline does not absorb negative energy. It repels it. It is the best crystal to use against the ill effects of low frequency and high frequency electromagnetic waves (EMF) and protects against smog, radiation, psychic attacks and repels all kinds of negative energy. It grounds energy as it is connected to the Chakra most related to its color. A powerful, electromagnetic, striated gem. Tourmaline strengthens body, spirit (and meridians), as it transmutes lower frequency thought/energy to a higher frequency of light and brings light/spirit into the physical. Therefore, it can actually balance ALL the Chakra centers. Tourmaline radiates light protection for wearer. This stone clears higher frequencies, effectively as it forms a protective shield all over the body (Aura). Tourmaline is a rod of power. I equate this crystal to that of the spinal column. It makes us stand up for ourselves, promoting confidence, self-realization, inspiration, tolerance and compassion. Therefore, it is one of my favorite crystals for alleviating fear. It banishes the victim mentality. Like the spinal column, tourmaline works like a lightning rod of energy from the tip of the coccyx to the apex of the axis, tourmaline affects every aspect of the physical to the emotional. The strength of tourmaline is in its many colors due to its mineral make up. Again like, the spine, tourmaline brings balance. It brings balance to both right and left brain hemispheres, transforming negative thoughts to positive thoughts, finding equilibrium between Yin and Yang and male and female energies. All these traits make this an amazing healing stone.

This crystal works on mental issues of anxiety, stress and paranoia. Wonderful for helping with dyslexia and therefore, good for hand-eye coordination. This crystal brings about the correct flow of energy, blood and lymph fluids. Tourmaline works as a great detoxing stone. Its effect on mental issues, physical ailments and blood related disorders make it so.

UNAKITE

GENERAL PROPERTIES

We often think of our emotions as originating and residing in the heart and mind, and Unakite can soothe any Heart Chakra issue because of both its green and pink colors. Unakite can be very helpful in the steady release of feelings long held in. An opaque coral pink and olive-green stone (two colors associated with the heart), Unakite consists of three minerals: feldspar, epidote, and quartz. When one is supported by deepened self-esteem and self-awareness, it is easier to allow old feelings to arise so that they may be released. Epidote, which derives from the Greek word epididonai meaning “to give additionally,” will indeed give additional support to one’s heart and balance the functions of these internal body processes. This stone can help those who suffer from stress, allowing these individuals the peace of mind and ability to get a good night sleep. It is also believed to help release conditions which have been inhibiting personal growth.


HEALTH BENEFITS

Unakite lends another element to self-awareness. In working with this stone people have noticed that they were able to go deeper than the physical symptoms of an illness and understanding the mental and emotional sources for it.
