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.
