The name tourmaline comes from a Sinhalese word, "tura mali", meaning "mixed coloured stones" and was originally applied to an assortment of coloured stones consisting mainly of zircons. It was first discovered by Dutch traders off the West Coast of Italy, the stone has a long history that dates back from the late 1600s and early 1700s. Back at that time, pink and red tourmaline stones were thought to be rubies. Deposits have been found in Afghanistan, Africa, Brazil and the USA
People believed that the gemstone has mystical powers for a very long time. In the 18th century, the stone was wrapped in silk and then put under the cheek of a child struggling with high fever to induce sleep, in Africa, people believed that the pink stone has the power to awaken their loved ones from the so-called “dream of illusion.” In ancient Indian ceremonies, the pink stone was used as a tool to give people insight into what was right for them, helping them find the cause of their troubles. The Empress Dowager Tz’u, the last empress of China, loved Pink Tourmaline so much she went to rest eternally on a pillow carved from Pink Tourmaline.
Alchemists believed that the stone is related to the philosopher’s stone, and can bring enlightenment, give one power over their spiritual affairs, attract opposites, and even change base metals to gold.
