I really thought this was an interesting article. I didn’t know the ‘meaning’ behind this stone, and since I’ve decided to buy a tourmaline ring, I thought it’d be nice to know the supposed symbolism behind it.
I also thought it was interesting that pink tourmaline is a ‘fertility stone’, and I know I’ve seen some pink tourmaline e-rings on the boards, lol.
