Healing Properties of Red Tourmaline Quartz
Spiritual: Red Tourmaline is an incredible stone for anyone seeking to deepen their ability to love. It connects the base to the heart, creating a direct pathway for devotional practices that require one to be grounded and firmly heart-centered. Red Tourmaline is also a stone of great courage, helping us to surrender fully to the Divine and the power of Love. Red Tourmaline is attuned to the Root and Heart Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Libra, Sagittarius and Scorpio. It is connected to the elements Water and Earth and vibrates to the numbers 1, 2, 4, and 5.
Emotional: Red Tourmaline has a very loving vibrational field that encourages us to be more friendly and charming. It encourages feelings of comfort, safety which in turn can be used to heal old emotional wounds, particularly those related to childhood. It helps us find the courage to love, again or for the first time. When evoked, Red Tourmaline can be a very passionate stone as well, inspiring us to love more deeply and richly. It can be used to attract new relationships, stimulate existing ones, and encourage greater self love. Anyone who feels emotionally numb or isolated will benefit from the dynamic energy of Red Tourmaline which shines like a beacon, drawing us back into Light, Love, and Life.
Mental: Red Tourmaline helps us to stay focused on our goals, but remain flexible enough to adjust them as necessary. It helps us to see the world more compassionately and not be torn apart and distracted by negative emotions. Red Tourmaline inspires us to be more merciful in our thinking. To be merciful, we must first be grounded and empowered, and from that place of strength we can then offer forgiveness and absolution to others.
Physical: Red Tourmaline is most often used to heal the physical heart. It has also been used to treat the digestive, reproductive, and circulatory systems. It is most often used to treat PTSD and depression, as well as to sooth the nervous system.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
*Red Tourmaline Quartz has the same qualities as pure Red Tourmaline, however, the energy is magnified due to the presence of Clear Quartz.
Ethically Sourced Red Tourmaline Quartz Heart
I first met the owner of the lapidary at the 2006 Gem and Mineral show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time I was working for a crystal shop in Utah and was at Tucson primarily as a “pack mule” to help carry all the stones. It was generally agreed by our crew that the “Madagascar” tent contained the most beautiful stones in the entire show.
In 2014, I embarked on my first buying trip for Moonrise Crystals. The company I knew of only as “Madagascar” was the one company I was most determined to find and buy from. This lapidary company only sells at a handful of major gem shows. The only time they are in the USA is for the Tucson Gem Show. During the rest of the year, the lapidary hand polishes their stock and also does charity work in their local community. They continue to offer some of the most beautiful tumbled stones in the industry and are among my favorite suppliers.
In 2019, Moonrise Crystals and the Madagascar lapidary company joined together to financially support a rural school in Madagascar.

Safe Handling of Red Tourmaline Quartz
Cleaning Healing Crystals
There are many ways to cleanse, charge, and set intentions with crystals.
Before cleaning your healing crystals, always consider the geology of each stone. Some stones are sensitive to water and/or sunlight. Best Practice is to keep your stones out of direct sunlight when you’re not working with them, simply because the sunlight will fade the crystal’s color over time. This is especially true for transparent and translucent gems. Remember crystals grow underground where it’s nice and dark! Stones that are formed in dry desert conditions may be harmed by immersion in water. This is especially true for fragile and porous stones.
One of the easiest and most effective way to energetically clean crystals is to smudge them with smoke from plants like sage, juniper, cedar, lavender, tobacco, etc. Each plant has its own unique smell and spiritual property. Moonrise Crystals smudges with white mountain sage (for cleansing) and sweet grass (for kindness) before the crystals are sent to their forever home with you.
Other common ways to energetically clean healing crystals are to set stones near a piece of Carnelian, Citrine, Kyanite, Selenite or other stones that are energy purifiers. Be sure to pamper the purifying stones regularly so that they can continue to do their job properly. Citrine and Kyanite are self-cleansers that don’t “need” extra care. But they will love getting extra attention from you!
If a stone is doing a lot of heavy energetic work, one of the best ways to restore its energy reserves is to allow it to rest on the earth, next to a plant. A potted plant inside the house works just fine. Let the crystal rest overnight or longer, until its energy feels bright and sparkly again.
Charging and Setting Intentions with Healing Crystals
There is no right/wrong way to charge and set intentions. But here’s a few ways that it’s done at Moonrise Crystals.
Cleanse the crystals and yourself. It is good to take the time to physically clean stones before doing spiritual work. It sets a tone of purity, respect, and reverence. Hold the crystals or be near them. Sing or talk to the stones. Tell them about yourself and what you are working on. Ask them for their help. You don’t need to use any special words, simply speak from the heart. Treat the crystals like your best friends and closest allies. They want to help you.
If you feel shy or awkward, you can also write your message on a piece of paper and set the stones on top of it. Music, including singing bowls, can also be used. The most important thing is simply to be present with the stones and focused on setting the intention.
This can be done at any time, day or night. However, nighttime is often a particularly good time for setting intentions. Take the crystals outside, if possible. You can talk to your crystals outside, or you may just want to sit near them and meditate or pray.
- During the Full Moon, energy is amplified. It is also a wonderful time to celebrate in the bright light when your intentions are already going well and you want to keep the trend going.
- The New Moon is a time for new beginnings. The darkness is like planting a seed underground. It will grow up into the Light.
- Eclipses, meteorite showers, and other astronomical events will add their own unique energy.
- Knowing where the moon is astrologically, can also add a fun element to intention setting. The moon changes signs every 2-3 days.
