This is an unusual, natural Bi-colour Blue & Purple Tourmaline crystal set with heavy Sterling Silver so it can be worn as a necklace or pendant around the neck.
This pendant is one of a range of fairly crudely made Sterling Silver jewellery that came out of Brazil more than 20 years ago.
Blue Tourmaline crystals are much rarer than pink or green crystals, especially in this size, which makes this quite a special pendant / necklace.
Tourmaline is a crystalline boron silicate mineral compounded with elements such as aluminium, iron, magnesium, sodium, lithium, or potassium. Tourmaline is classified as a semi-precious stone and the gemstone comes in a wide variety of colors.
Usually, iron-rich tourmaline's are black to bluish-black to deep brown, while magnesium-rich varieties are brown to yellow, and lithium-rich tourmaline's are almost any color: blue, green, red, yellow, pink, etc. Rarely, it is colorless. Bi-colored and multicolored crystals are common, reflecting variations of fluid chemistry during crystallization.

Blue Tourmaline, or Indicolite, helps one develop the psychic gifts—clairvoyance, clairaudience, clairsentience, prophecy and spirit communication. It is particularly useful for those who wish to become channels and mediums because it enhances one’s ability to see and hear through the veil that separates us from the deceased and our spirit guides.
Placing a Blue Tourmaline upon the sixth chakra enables one to open the third eye and “tunnel through” to the other world. Blue Tourmaline energizes the throat chakra, helping one translate psychic impressions into verbal communication. In everyday communication, Blue Tourmaline aids one in gracefully expressing deep feelings and insights.
Blue Tourmaline also aids in attuning to and channeling the healing energies offered from higher dimensions. It facilitates contact with benevolent spiritual beings and the reception of their blessings. Meditation with Blue Tourmaline can open the doors to the highest spiritual realms, offering experiences of ecstatic rapture. If one has difficulty returning to the grounded state, Black Tourmaline is recommended.
