Properties: Green tourmaline is one of the most powerful of healing and detoxifying crystals, and possesses a strong mood-lifting effect. It supports and strengthens the immune system including the lymphatic system. It has a strong connection with both the Heart and with the Third Eye, and can aid psychic awareness and astral travel. A natural green tourmaline wand can be used to direct energy when treating an injury or illness, and also for guiding energy in a crystal layout.
Dark green tourmaline has the ability to make one feel grounded and protected while at the same time being open, especially at the Heart. As such it can aid meditation and self-healing.
