The colour pink is associated with love and other matters of the heart, and Pink Tourmaline is the quintessential heart-chakra stone. It is representative of the feminine, or yin energy. It is one of the best gemstones to aid in healing old emotional wounds, particularly those of childhood. It emanates a soft, soothing energy that engenders feeling of comfort, safety and nurturance. It is known for being able to infuse the entire emotional body with love and can help restore one to a sense of wholeness.
Pink Tourmaline can be used to repair 'holes' in the auric field created by negative attachments or past abuse. Wearing or carrying a Pink Tourmaline Crystal can assist one in releasing stress, worries, depression and anxiety. These crystals can help the emotionally 'numb' recover their passion and zest for life. They strengthen the link between the heart and crown chakras, opening the pathway for infusion of the heart with the highest Divine energies. They can help the timid find the courage to love, and they can increase the trait of gentleness in most individuals. Wearing Pink Tourmaline turns one into a beacon of its loving and healing energies, making it more difficult for others to project negativity in one's direction and often influencing them towards greater kindness and tolerance.
Pink Tourmaline supports emotional healing and the activation of the heart chakra. It stimulates feelings of joy, happiness and relaxation.

It is a partner to Black Tourmaline in relieving stress and diffusing worry or obsessive behaviour. In meditation, pink Tourmaline can aid in clearing and purifying the emotional body. It helps identify emotional patterns no longer aligned with one's spiritual growth and can assist in changing these patterns to reflect higher approaches to relationship and communication.
Pink Tourmaline is excellent for sensitive people, particularly children, as it provides a centering, calming energy that can assist with considering consequence and karma before taking action.
Pink Tourmaline activates the high-heart centre and one's ability to surrender to Love. It helps one find strength in vulnerability and feel joy in all one's learning experiences.
Pink Tourmaline is a powerful emotional balancer and cleanser. It is one of the strongest stones for alleviating stress and the emotional imbalances that can stem from that state. It is a powerful stone for children, especially when hyperactivity or difficulty sleeping is an issue.
