Stone of the Month for September – Tourmaline

This month’s topic title, from the Holistic Institute of Wellness, is Physical Wellness. There were an enormous number of categories that came to mind and, at first glance, my full list of potential crystals & stones was completely overwhelming. I used my own needs to drill down:

Sleep & the Immune System appeared to be the most relevant for me. Under current circumstances I can think of nothing more critical for us all than our immune systems and personally I’ve always needed sleep. I am intensely aware when my body, and especially my mind, are not well rested.

From the list below you can see just how many potentials there are (and these are just the immunity & sleep ones!) I thought this was going to be another tough decision to pick just one. But, would you know? Turns out many of the stones that can aid, boost, and strengthen the immune system also aid with insomnia, sleep generally and/or exhaustion!

Then it became really easy – Tourmaline just kept showing up in all its glorious colors with their magical qualities.

Tourmaline“Cleanses, purifies, and transform dense energy into a lighter vibration”.

Black – Defends against debilitating disease, strengthens immune system.
Blue – Benefits immune system. Carries the ray of peace. Helpful for insomnia.
Green – Excellent healer. Releases exhaustion. Treats the immune system.
Pink – Calms the mind & relives stress. Promotes peace & relaxation. Stimulates receptivity to healing energies
Multicolored Gem – Stimulates immune system and metabolism. Promotes dreams.

Here are just a few of the others that came through in my research, this is not an exhaustive list:

Amethyst – Treats insomnia, can bring restful sleep. Strengthens the immune system.
Ametrine – Clears stress & tension, calms the mind. Helps fatigue. Promotes healing. Strengthens immune system.
Bloodstone – An energy cleanser and immune stimulator. Aids mental exhaustion.
Iolite – Creates a strong constitution. Is anti-bacterial.
Lapis Lazuli – Boosts the immune system and alleviates insomnia.
Lepidolite – Strengthens immune system, restructures DNA. Calming stone that soothes sleep disturbances.
Picture Jasper – Brings comfort, alleviates fear, stimulates immunity.

For stimulating, enhancing, strengthening, and bolstering of, and for all round good immunity:
Green Calcite, Blue Chalcedony, Green Opal, Quartz – Master Healer, Blue & Aqua Aura Quartz **, Ruby in Zoisite, Rhyolite, & Shungite.

For good, deep, sleep, rest and relief from insomnia:
Charoite, Herkimer Diamonds, Howlite, Iron Pyrite, & Selenite.

Love & Blessings till next time. J

** Despite being artificially created – gold bonded to pure quartz – Aqua Aura quartz has intense energy.
