Green tourmaline has been associated with the green color of the heart chakra and also has been used for healing the physical heart and transformation. "Its spiritual vibrations harmonize with the energies of the Earth as it opens the Heart Chakra and stimulates a strong resonance with Divine Love." [Simmons, 410][Ahsian, 411] "Tourmaline grants us the inner peace to make the needed changes in our lives" [Stones Alive, Twintresses, 202].
