Pink Tourmaline: Meaning, Healing Properties & Uses

Pink Tourmaline, also called Rubellite, is a lovely pink crystal, overflowing with impressive properties. Let's find out more about the beautiful energy that Pink Tourmaline can bring into your life.

What Is Pink Tourmaline?

Pink Tourmaline belongs to the Tourmaline family. There are various colors of Tourmaline and each particular color has a different chemical composition.

The name comes from the ancient Sinhalese word turmali, which means crystals of all colors. These beautiful stones come in such a wide variety of colors that in the past they caused difficulties for merchants, who struggled to differentiate them from other stones.

Tourmalines can look different not just in color, but also in transparency. Some Tourmaline crystals are of exceptional clarity, while others look more like rough crystals. When it comes to Tourmalines, diversity is the name of the game.

The Tourmaline family includes, but is not limited to, Green Tourmaline, Blue Tourmaline, Purple Tourmaline, Black Tourmaline, and Pink Tourmaline. Pink Tourmaline is also known as Rubellite Tourmaline and it's one of the rarer types.

Each of them has been confused with another crystal at some point. For instance, Rubellite red stones were often confused with Ruby. You can read more about the different types of Tourmaline in our Tourmaline crystal guide.

What does Pink Tourmaline look like?

The Pink Tourmaline stones come in a variety of hues. You can find pale pink, hot pink, or deep pink crystals. There's even darker reddish-pink or red Rubellite. Red Tourmaline goes under the Rubellite category. The lighter colored stones can seem to change color under bright artificial light – it’s one of the ways of testing if they’re genuine.

With so many different shades of pink, it's no wonder that Pink Tourmaline gemstones were often confused with Rubies. In fact, rumor has it that many royal family crowns actually have Red or Pink Tourmaline stones instead of Rubies.

You can also find Pink Tourmaline combined with Green Tourmaline in Watermelon Tourmaline. These crystals are called that way since the Rubellite reminds you of the watermelon’s juicy center, while Green Tourmaline reminds you of the protective rind.

Whether you prefer Pink Tourmaline raw or faceted, this lovely pink stone set in jewelry pieces will make you shine. It will also keep you safe from undesirable energetic influences.

What Are The Pink Tourmaline Benefits For The Chakras?

The Pink Tourmaline stone has amazing healing powers. Each one of your chakras can benefit from the power of this lovely pink crystal. But there are two particular chakras that Pink Tourmaline is the most powerful for. We'll go through the main chakras and see how you can use Pink Tourmaline's help with each.

Crown chakra

Your crown chakra makes the connection with the higher energetic, astral, and dimensional realms. Pink Tourmaline introduces the frequency of balance. It helps your crown chakra as you go through the divine union of the divine feminine and divine masculine energies within your own energy. Wear Pink Tourmaline Bracelets while you're ascending and you'll receive gentle support.

Third eye chakra

All of your psychic insight, telepathic powers, and spiritual perception are centered around your third eye chakra. Experiencing these things can be a bit alarming, especially at the beginning of your spiritual journey. Pink Tourmaline helps soothe your resistance and potential apprehension as you experience your spiritual awakening. It's also very helpful when you receive energetic upgrades. It keeps the process gentle and safe from negative energy.

Throat chakra

The throat chakra is the energetic center of your communication and self-expression. With the help of Pink Tourmaline, your words will be gentle and compassionate. You'll find the right things to say during trying times. In fact, by wearing the Energy-Boosting Necklace you'll see all of your interactions improve considerably.

Thymus chakra

The thymus chakra is also known as the karmic heart chakra or the higher heart chakra. It's nestled between your heart chakra and the throat chakra. It's believed that this chakra is the seat of the soul, the connection to your higher self.

Your process of spiritual ascension involves this chakra a lot. Fear and toxic energies that affect this chakra can be karmic in nature. Healing this energetic center improves your current life and your future ones. Pink Tourmaline is one of the most powerful thymus chakra healing crystals. Wearing the Cosmic Balance Earrings detoxes your soul and supports your journey of connecting more with your higher self.

Heart chakra

Another powerful center of energy Pink Tourmaline harmonizes with is the heart chakra. The heart chakra is the seat of your emotional ties and the root of your emotional body. Pink crystals, in general, work well with the heart chakra and help your emotional healing. 

Pink Tourmaline helps you harmonize with unconditional love. You can also call in your divine counterpart or twin flame. It activates your high vibe soul contracts through your heart chakra.

Solar plexus chakra

The solar plexus chakra is the seat of your personal power and ability to manifest. When you experience feelings of insecurity or lack of confidence, you hold back more.

If this chakra suffers from a lower energy vibe, you'll lose ambition and drive. If you're dealing with negative energy at the level of this chakra, you might become obsessive about achieving goals.

Pink Tourmaline helps your solar plexus stay balanced and have a high vibe. It ensures a steady but gentle energy flow that cleanses and reinvigorates you.

Sacral chakra

Creativity and fertility are closely related to your sacral chakra. This particular energy point benefits from the help of Red Tourmaline or Pink Tourmaline.

Rubellite Tourmaline connects with the creative energies of the higher dimensions. It plants the seed of divine creation in your energy field. And then, it nourishes it with a sweet and delicate flow of high vibes.

Root chakra

How Do You Cleanse Pink Tourmaline?

When choosing your cleansing method, keep in mind the nature of your crystal. Pink Tourmaline is a high vibe crystal that works with all your chakras. It's naturally attuned to the frequency of unconditional love, which is a very high frequency.

That means that the best ways to cleanse your crystal are light and sound. Other methods that will also work are cleansing crystals and smudging.

Cleansing with light

Cleansing with light is one of the most efficient methods for crystals that resonate with higher chakras. These crystals deal with high frequencies.

Their ability to cleanse higher chakras means they deal with complicated negative energies. As a result, they need the highest frequency for effective cleansing. Light is the highest frequency of all.

When it comes to this cleansing method, you have two options: natural light and lamplight.

Rubellite responds well to sunlight. Place your stone under direct sunlight at noon and leave it there for a couple of hours. That's going to cleanse your Tourmaline.

But Rubellite works with emotional energies as well. That means it will also respond well to moonlight. Place your Tourmaline crystal under direct moonlight, preferably on the Full Moon. Other moments of the lunar cycle can work too, but you might have to leave your crystal under the moonlight for a few nights instead of just one.

Salt lamps are a wonderful cleansing method for your crystals. Leave on the Rose Salt Night Light and place your Tourmaline nearby. Depending on how often you cleanse it, a few hours could be enough. If you cleanse your crystal more rarely, consider leaving it under the lamplight for a longer time.

Cleansing with sound

Sound cleansing is a wonderful way to get rid of low vibes. There are a few options you can use.

One of the easiest methods is to use cleansing music. You can find it for sale or even for free on places like YouTube. When you play these songs, the frequencies of the sound will cleanse your crystal, your own body, and your environment.

This method does a more wide-spectrum type of cleansing. Because of that, you'll need to leave the music on for a while. Consider even leaving it on overnight. You'll experience deep restful sleep and wake up refreshed.

Another sound-cleansing method is using singing bowls. You can use Tibetan singing bowls or chakra-specific singing bowls. This method is a bit more involved. You need to own a bowl or have access to one, at least.

A third sound cleansing method is using bells or chimes. The higher the pitch of the sound, the better it cleanses higher chakras energies.

Cleansing with crystals

Using crystals to cleanse other crystals is a very effective method. Cleansing-dedicated stones are self-cleansers or naturally repel low vibes.

The Fluorite Cleansing Stone will cleanse the mind, body, spirit, and environment. Place your Tourmaline next to it and it will repel any negative vibes from it. The improved energetic flow through the Tourmaline will help the process along.

The Selenite Cleansing Lamp combines the best of two cleansing methods: light and crystal. Selenite is a very powerful crystal cleanser. Aided by the light, it's a magnificent cleansing method. Set your Tourmaline close to the Selenite lamp and turn it on. A few hours should be enough, but the more the merrier, as they say.

Cleansing with smudging

Smudging involves the process of burning white sage and other natural herbs that have cleansing powers like Palo Santo. You can also use incense.

The smoke resulting from the burning sage has very powerful cleansing powers. Waft the smoke in the direction of your Pink Tourmaline stone. It will cleanse it and optimize its energies.

Every once in a while, we advise you to use the nuclear cleansing method by combining two or three methods described above. You can combine all of them if you feel the need to. You can't really do too much cleansing, after all.

Keep in mind that your own energy and that of your home need to be cleansed regularly. If not, you're trying to wash clothes in a basin of dirty water.

The crystals in your space will absorb your low energies. Cleansing them will get rid of that low vibe. But your living and workspace will also have absorbed your lower energies. They will contaminate each other in an endless loop. Cleansing regularly will break that cycle.

How Do You Charge Pink Tourmaline?

After you've cleansed your Tourmaline, it's time to charge it. You can do the cleansing without necessarily charging your crystal afterward. But you can't charge it without cleansing first.

Some of the cleansing methods that involve light will also work as charging methods once the cleansing is over. That's because the Pink Tourmaline responds best to the frequency of light.

Whether you've chosen sunlight, moonlight, or lamplight, it will charge your Pink Tourmaline stone. If you've cleansed your crystal using smudging or sound though, you need to do the charging separately.

Setting an intention for charging

Do you have a particular goal in mind for using your Pink Tourmaline next? Charging your stones for a particular purpose can make it easier to manifest.

Once you're sure about the goal, ask your higher self: "What type of light best suits this goal?" If your goal pertains more to the upper chakras, then it's better to use moonlight to charge your crystal. If it pertains more to the lower chakras, then sunlight is the best choice. Lamplight will work as a solid alternative whatever your goal.

Now you know what type of light you need to use. Place your Pink Tourmaline stone under the light source, be it Sun, Moon, or a salt/crystal lamp. Close your eyes and visualize the goal you want to achieve. Picture it accomplished. Feel the joy and fulfillment you'll experience after accomplishing it. Now ask your crystal to help you achieve this goal. Send appreciation its way for the help, guidance, and support it will lend you.

Now place your crystal under the source of light. A few hours should be enough to charge it. Follow your intuition on how long you should let it charge for. When you feel like the time is right, then your crystal is ready to make your dreams come true.
