This tourmaline is very “old soul” and yet, very wonderful – a 6.1 oz, 2.9” by 2.15” by 1.6” DT crystal that I found in a flat of miscellaneous crystals acquired maybe 15 years ago! And I’m not at all sure where she is from … likely Brazil but don’t hold me to that! This tourmaline is not the gemmy and candy-colored treats that generally are found – her heart is dravite (brown tourmaline) with terminations of deep pink and a few accents of green. The tourmaline is chatoyant and covered in areas by golden cookeite. Apologies for the photography … her overall dark color was a bit too contrasty with the relative lightness of the cookeite. However, as soon as you gaze at her you will realize how intricate and stunning she is, even if first impressions are her humbleness and roughness.
This combination of tourmalines seems to be instrumental in forcing you to face memories and events that you “buried” within long ago – and often these memories are very unpleasant … which is why they are buried. They are not forgotten or gone and they will emerge in very different ways. Sometimes, it’s a news story or a similar event or a relative coming for a visit. Other times, it has a physical manifestation in the form of debilitating disease or psychological issue. The key issue here is that as well as you thought it was “buried” … it isn’t and sooner or later, you must deal with it, no matter how unpleasant. The risk is that if you don’t, this block will remain in your Chakras, lifetime after lifetime and the events will recreate until you delve into them and release the issue.
All that said, this is a wonderful Spirit for assisting with just that, … her pink and green aspects lighten the load, allowing you to work in a more loving manner so that the release isn’t as abrupt or extreme. Cookeite assures a calmness and clarity as you move through the process. Issues arise and one by one, play to your psyche so that you can finally resolve them. This isn’t an instantaneous process, but one that will take time, patience and plenty of loving assistance from your crystalline friend. She wants to help and together, you can free the limitations on your own Spiritual growth!
