This is a stunning, high clarity, minty coloured naturally terminated Green 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.
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.

Green Tourmaline is one of the premier stones for self healing. It centers the energies at the heart chakra, and it is more connected to the denser vibrations of physical life than is its heart-oriented cousin, Pink Tourmaline. The physical heart in humans is a powerful generator of bio-electricity, creating a measurable energy field that extends twelve to fifteen feet around the body. Green Tourmaline emanates a subtle-energy field that can harmonize with that of the heart, engendering wholeness, dynamic balance and stability. Green Tourmaline is beneficial to all living things. It can be used to enhance gardens and house plants and to connect with the spirits of plants and animals.
