Pink tourmaline symbolizes friendship, compassion, and transformation. The name Tourmaline comes from a Sinhalese (Sri Lankan) word turamali – loosely translated as “mixed” and used to describe assortments of multicolored gemstone pebbles found in local regions where sand and sediment were once deposited by running water.

Tourmaline is thought to increase one’s ability to heal, helping ease communication, and imparting compassion, wisdom, acceptance and sympathy towards others. It also balances opposing types of energy and imparts self-confidence and serenity upon the wearer. Pink tourmaline is said to attract love and friendship. Pink tourmaline also influences the heart, the thymus, and the circulatory system, skin, blood and adrenal system.

All of these are wonderful reasons to wear pink tourmaline as a pendant, but maybe you are simply drawn to its beauty. Always wear stones you like, stones that  draw you to them.
