Myths

According to popular myths, tourmaline is believed to have traveled along the rainbow and thus getting all of its beautiful colors, including various shades of pink. Its property to become electrically charged when rubbed or heated led to the association of the October birthstone to the philosopher’s stone. In ancient China, tourmalines were used for the carving and engraving of figures. Interestingly, some of them are on display museums, showcasing not only the breathtaking beauty of pink tourmaline, but also its durability.
