Additional Information

Green Tourmaline is one of the most powerful of healing and detoxifying crystals, and possesses a strong mood-lifting effect. It supports and strengthens the immune system including the lymphatic system. It has a strong connection with both the Heart and with the Third Eye, and can aid psychic awareness and astral travel.

A natural green tourmaline wand can be used to direct energy when treating an injury or illness, and also for guiding energy in a crystal layout.
