Tourmaline is thought to be for people who bear a broken heart, as it encourages love, gently disperses emotional pain and dissolves disruptive feelings. It calms the negative emotions that upset relationships. It is also considered an aphrodisiac, helping people realize when it is safe to love and when it is time to overcome sorrow or traumatic memories. It introduces the presence of compassion and wisdom when dealing with others because it is thought to promote flexibility of thought and open-mindedness. These are 8mm tourmaline beads are combined with bleached wood beads that look like drift wood. The tourmaline beads have hues of purple, pink, green and black. This is a very unique bracelet that wraps around three times. Fits a smaller wrist but can be adjusted, just send me a message.
