Rubellite, is also known as Red Tourmaline or Pink Tourmaline and is very much a stone of the heart. Most commonly this stone is found married with Quartz or Smoky Quartz. It carries with it the heart energies of strength and vitality, and passion for love and life. Rubellite resonates closely with the Heart Chakra, more intensely than many other stones associated with this Chakra. It has links not only to earth love energy but also Divine Love.
Rubellite energizes both the Heart Chakra and the Root Chakra, increasing the flow of life energy and helping to nurture and heal the emotional, the spiritual and the physical body. It carries with it the same grounding properties as Black Tourmaline as well as an appetite and appreciation for life and relationships. It can help to revive passion and joy as well as increase sexuality.
Tourmaline stones are part of a large family of Aluminium borosilicates that have mixed with magnesium, iron, or other metals that depending on the mixture can varies its color greatly. Tourmaline can be found in Black, red, yellow, pink, green, brown or even violet. The name Tourmaline comes from the ancient Sinhalese word "Thoramalli" (තෝරමල්ලි) “a precious stone of mixed color”
Because it contains iron, Tourmaline can sometimes be made magnetic by charging it with static electricity. Once charged, it has distinct south and north poles and can attract small pieces of paper and dust.
