Tourmaline was first discovered by Dutch traders off the West Coast of Italy around the late 1600's. Due to the many color variants found in the stone, it has been often confused throughout the ages. It's name itself is derived from the Sinhalese word toramalli and turmali, meaning "mixed gems".
Tourmaline is a very receptive stone in that it is soothing, calming, offers protection, promotes meditation, spirituality, compassion, wisdom, peace, communication, good fortune, as well as money attraction.
