Tourmaline is the most multicolored mineral type known, occurring in virtually every color of the spectrum. It has many interesting optical properties. When viewed through their vertical axis, some specimens appear darker or differ in color than when seen through their horizontal axis. Certain Tourmalines exhibit a cat's eye effect when polished. This mineral is also piezoelectric which means that through mechanical action an electric pulse is formed, similar to quartz.
Tourmaline is sought after as a talisman of protection to deflect and counteract negative energies. It is also used to guard against radiation and environmental pollutants. It's deeply connected as a root chakras, and help ground you to feel safe. When they are balanced, it can grant you that confidence to your higher truth and spiritual healing.
Try incorporating it in your readings to help protect your session, carry it on you, or even sleeping with it (in your pillowcase) can help alleviate the negative energies and anger and cleanse your auric field.

Ethically Sourced: It was very important in the crystal and gemstone sourcing that it was purchased only from mining suppliers that had the correct certificates that established their operations as safe and environmentally sound. My wholesaler is adamant on ensuring the crystals are fair-trade, where income is being used to support a diverse group of small manufactures and families. Most of the semi-precious stones and crystals come from family owned mines that are passed down from generations (like a family farm here in Canada).
I understand it can be difficult to feel a stone's energy when shopping online. When selecting stones for your order, I personally select the stones with intention for you based on the stock available.
There can be variance in the stone's colouring and shape, as is the world of stone, gems and crystals are non-refundable. No two pieces are alike. Each one will slightly vary in size, shape and colour.
Disclaimer: While using your gems/crystals in practice, please note that Hermit's Path does not guarantee any stone to have any physical or mental health impact. I do not make any claims that it will help. Remember, this is a personal practice... connecting with the energy is not a substitute for traditional medicine where it may be needed. :)
