We just love tourmaline gemstone beads here at A Grain of Sand. When a shipment comes in, the whole lot of us gals get all excited. We just love to pass the tourmaline beads around and feel the metaphysical elements flow through us. Once we even talked about showering in tourmaline. Wouldn't that be wonderful? Let me tell you why we love tourmaline beads. First of all, the colors that these gemstone beads come in is as wide as the rainbow. In fact, that's why so much of tourmaline is called rainbow tourmaline. Some of these beads actually have two or more colors within a single gemstone bead.There are many different varieties of tourmaline beads. You may have heard of pink tourmaline, watermelon tourmaline, rainbow tourmaline, green tourmaline or even indicolite tourmaline and all are beautiful semi precious gemstones. Tourmaline semi precious stones work to purify the entire body. Tourmaline aids in the understanding of one's self and others. It promotes self-confidence and diminishes fear. It attracts inspiration, compassion, tolerance and prosperity. It balances the right to left sides of the brain. It also helps treat paranoia, overcomes dyslexia and improves hand-eye coordination. Tourmaline releases tension, enhances energy and removes blockages. We notice that there is a general sense of joy around the office when we handle tourmaline gemstone beads.
