Tourmaline: A comprehensive analysis of the characteristics and effects of the King of Crystals

Tourmaline, this gem known as the "King of Crystals", has always been loved and sought after by the public. From the tourmaline craze decades ago to the current candy tourmaline trend, it can be seen that its charm has not diminished. Why is colored tourmaline so popular among people? Let’s take a closer look.

The history and legend of tourmaline

The history of tourmaline can be traced back to the ancient Egyptian period thousands of years ago, when people began to use tourmaline to treat various diseases, including neuralgia, vascular diseases, lymphatic diseases, and mood disorders. The ancient Egyptians believed that the fascinating color of colored tourmalines came from the rainbow.
In China, tourmaline is the favorite of the Empress Dowager Cixi, and her fascination with tourmaline has reached the point of obsession. It is said that the Empress Dowager Cixi consumed several tons of rough tourmaline in a year to make various kinds of jewelry.

The composition and structure of tourmaline

Tourmaline is a cyclic borosilicate mineral containing boron and contains elements such as aluminum, iron, magnesium, sodium, lithium or potassium.
Electrical Properties of Tourmaline
Tourmaline, also known as tourmaline, is the only mineral that can be permanently charged. It has been used as a laboratory material since the 19th century.
In addition, tourmaline can also release negative ions to balance the pH of the blood in the body. The far-infrared rays it produces can promote metabolism, blood circulation, cell regeneration, and enhance one's own immunity, taking the wearer's health to a higher level.

Tourmaline Authenticity Identification

Due to the high value of tourmaline, a large number of counterfeit colored tourmalines have long existed on the market. Methods of counterfeiting tourmaline generally include color injection, or using spar with a similar color as a substitute. However, the cost of verification at a laboratory is relatively high, so consumers are advised to purchase from reputable stores for greater protection.

Types of Tourmaline

Tourmaline comes in many different varieties, including classic tourmaline and the more recent candy tourmaline. Candy Tourmaline is also called Afghan Tourmaline. Its color is not as deep as traditional tourmaline. On the contrary, the color is more vivid and lighter, just like candy, hence the name Candy Tourmaline. The color of candy tourmaline is similar to the pastel color that has been popular in recent years, so it has once again sparked a tourmaline craze.
Tourmaline: The Almighty King of Crystals
Tourmaline is known as the "King of Crystals" because of its comprehensive effects, powerful energy and long history. However, it is not easy to enjoy the most comprehensive energy of tourmaline, because different colors of tourmaline have different effects.

Tourmaline color and its effects

Tourmaline comes in a variety of colors, and because each color has a different energy frequency, each has different effects.

blue tourmaline

Blue tourmaline is the rarest tourmaline, and its rarity is hundreds of times that of tourmalines of other colors. It corresponds to the throat chakra and emotions, helping expression, communication skills, persuasion, and emotional balance.

black tourmaline

Black energy is mainly used to ward off evil spirits, block evil spirits, and remove negative energy. It has a protective effect on people's negative energy. Its shape is more ordinary, bright black and solid color, and its output is more than that of other colors of tourmaline, so its price is the lowest among tourmalines.

Tourmaline bicolor characteristics

Tourmaline has a unique property, which is its ability to blend two or more colors. Among them, the most well-known is watermelon tourmaline. The unique coexistence of red and green colors of this tourmaline makes its price far higher than that of single-color tourmaline. Another kind of blue-green tourmaline (Paraiba) is even more rare and valuable.

The scope of bicolor tourmaline does not stop there, it also includes a variety of colors such as yellow and green. It is worth mentioning that the colors of those more valuable two-color tourmalines can change like a spectrum, from thick to light, and as colorful as a rainbow. This unique color change makes bicolor tourmaline extremely valuable and collectible in the gem market.

How should you wear tourmaline?

If tourmaline is usually worn on the left hand, the effect will be better. When necessary, it can be worn on the right hand to release its energy.

Black tourmaline should be worn on the right hand for a long time.


Tourmaline is the same as ordinary spar. You can just remove it when taking a bath. The main thing is to avoid contact with hot water.

If you wear it during the day, take it off at night and let it rest. If worn at night, the opposite is true.
