Tourmaline symbolizes love, friendship and wealth. It is used to calm nerves and induce rest and tranquility. The name Tourmaline comes from the Singhalese (Sri Lanka) word tura mali which translates as the stone of mixed colors. Ancient legend says that tourmaline is found in all colors having gathered them as it traveled along a rainbow’s arc. It is believed to strengthen the body and spirit and inspire creativity. Artists and writers used it extensively as a talisman. Tourmaline most commonly occurs in varying shades of green and pink (and often together in a single gem, called “Watermelon Tourmaline”) and also blue and black, though other colors do sometimes occur.
