Perhaps one of the most endearing crystals, the Pink Tourmaline, aka Rubelite, is the ultimate embodiment of love, compassion, and emotional well-being. With colours characteristic of its symbol (heart), the crystal can be found in variations of pale pink to deep red and even hot pink. It is one of the most intriguing and gorgeous crystals to look at, with some pieces being flawlessly transparent gems to others which are rough opaque crystals. Each gem is as unique and mysterious as the workings of the heart, where some stones are prismatic or vertically striated crystals, while others have gorgeous magenta stripes flowing in a sea of milky white stones.
The ultimate Self-love stone, Pink Tourmaline releases guilt, worry, depression and anxieties.

For those shrouded by fear, mistrust or emotional wounds, this stone is perfect as it connects you with the deepest matters of the heart, rebuilding your confidence and emotional wellbeing. Vibrating loving energies within the heart chakra, it promotes peace and relaxation and connects you with wisdom, joy and a zest for life.
