Tourmaline was known to the ancients in the Mediterranean. Egyptian legend speaks of how Tourmaline made its journey from the center of the Earth and passed over a rainbow, taking with it all of the colors as its own. The Romans used these stones for their relaxing properties of inducing tranquil sleep, calming the mind and relaxing the body.
Tourmaline was first brought to Europe by Dutch traders in the 1700s who gave it the name, Aschentrekker, or “ash puller,” for its alternating powers of attracting, then repelling, hot ashes from burning coals when the stone was laid near the coals for any length of time. The Dutch traders used the crystals to pull ashes from their Meerschaum pipes. This ability to gain magnetic powers and become electrically “polar” by means of heat readily distinguished Tourmaline from any other gem.

Tourmaline is the zodiac stone for those born under the sign of Libra, between September 23 and October 22, the middle of the harvest. Libra is the only sign that is an inanimate object - a balance beam referred to as The Balance. During this month the days and nights are equal lengths, and the Earth and Sun are in balance. Librans are very strong-willed, artistic, sensitive, and respectful. They are understanding and relate well to other people.
