Rubellite Tourmaline, also known as Red Tourmaline, is a stone of perfected heart – one that is strong, vital and full of passion for love and life. This combination of bright pink and ruby red color creates a vibration that vibrates deeper with the heart chakra than other heart stones. It not only connects with the heart of the earth, but also opens up to the love that goes beyond human relationships and reaches the universe.
Rubellite stimulates not only the heart chakra, but also the root chakra, bringing an increased flow of prana or vital energy energies to nurture and heal the body emotionally . Its basic influence increases the joy of life and the lively interaction with others. It helps to revitalize passion and joy in sexuality and helps to make committed commitments on the basis of love.
The name Rubellit comes from the Latin rubellus and means “reddish” and refers to the similarity of its color to Ruby, although most Rubellites are more pink than red. They vary in color from pale to shocking pink to a strong Ruby red, sometimes with violet tint. While some in the gemstone world “Rubellite” only designate a trade name for all deep pink / red Tourmaline, the International Colored Gem Association (ICGA) defines the criterion for Rubellite as they behave in daylight and artificial light. While many precious stones change the color depending on the light source, a real Rubellite is as intense as in daylight, while other pink or red Tourmalines have a visible brown tint in artificial light.
Although Tourmaline is found on every continent, fine crystal preparations and gemstones are still considered rare and can be quite expensive. Its great popularity as a gem began in 1876, when the mineralogist and jeweler George Kunz sold a green Tourmaline of Maine to the famous Tiffany and Co. in New York and spread its appeal. More recently, it has become a favorite of metaphysical collectors and practitioners because of their versatile energy properties.
Tourmaline belongs to a complex family of aluminum borosilicates which are mixed with iron, magnesium or other metals and can be red, pink, yellow, brown, black, green, blue or violet depending on the proportions of their constituents. Its prismatic, vertically striped crystals can be long and slender or thick and columnar, and are triangular in cross-section. They often vary in color within a single sample, longitudinally or in cross-sections, and may be transparent or opaque. The name Turmalin comes from an old Sinhala word “turmali”, which means “a mixed colored gemstone” or “turamali” which means “something small from the earth”.
One of the most outstanding properties of Tourmaline is its ability to charge itself by heating or rubbing. During charging, one end becomes positive and the other negative, whereby it can attract dust particles or pieces of paper. This property of pyroelectricity (from heat) or piezoelectricity (by pressure or friction) was known to the Dutch merchants of the 1700s, who drew from their mollusc pipes with Tourmaline ash and called the stone ashtracker or “ashherie”.

Rubellite Tourmaline stimulates and activates a direct path between the Base Chakra and the Heart Chakra. It gives the physical body energy and vitality, while it combines the healing qualities of the heart with a loving awareness.
The base or root chakra is located at the base of the spine and controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. It is the basis of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When the basic kakak is in balance, the physical body gains strength and endurance, and spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one’s own strength. It often leads to independence and spontaneous leadership. Red crystal energy resembles the base chakra.
The heart chakra is located near the sternum center. It regulates our interaction with the outside world and controls what we embrace and what we resist. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves in the environment. When the heart chakra is in balance, we clearly understand our own needs and emotions. We can deal with the ebb and flow of emotional relationships, understand their cyclic nature and accept the changes. Pink crystal energy balances the heart chakra.
Rubellite Tourmaline expands the awareness of true abundance – the sense that everything we need is provided by the mind. To open the heart to others and the world and to receive this fullness enables a sense of peace and fulfillment.

Tourmaline was known to the ancient in the Mediterranean. The Egyptian legend tells how Tourmaline took his journey from the center of the earth and passed through a rainbow, assuming all colors as his own. The Romans used these stones for their relaxing properties, create quiet sleep, soothe the mind and relax the body.
In India, a portrait of Alexander the Great was carved in Tourmaline and dates from the second or third century BC, And in rituals of this culture, Tourmaline was used to bring a direction on what would bring good, and it was believed to be “narrator” stone to give insight to a person or something caused anger.
Tourmaline has been used by shamans from the tribes of Africa, aborigines of the Americas and the Aborigines, and is intended to lend the user healing powers and provide protection from all risks that occur on the physical plane. The African shaman also used it to promote the awakening of the “dream of illusion” and to experience the self as part of the universal mind.
Tourmaline was first brought to Europe by Dutch traders in the 1700s, who gave it to Aschentrekker or “Aschenzieher” because they alternately attracted the hot ashes of burning coals and then descended as the stone near the coals for any length of time. The Dutch merchants used the crystals to pull ash from their marsh whistles. This ability to gain magnetic forces and become electrically “polar” by heat has made Tourmaline different from any other gem.
More recently, some in the metaphysical world have come to the conclusion that Tourmaline is not native to the earth, but has been materialized through higher life forms on our planet to assist people in the transition to the Age of Aquarius. It is also believed that special Tourmaline rods are created in alchemical laboratories deep in the Andes of South America. The enlightened beings who perform this magic dematerialize these rods, transport them, and then dematerialize them into mines in South America. These perfectly terminated rods can be up to twelve inches in length and contain the full color spectrum that can vibrate all the chakras at the same time, while they align the consciousness with the omnipotent cosmic force. Once they are dismantled, they are attracted to those who intuitively know how to use them.
