Green Tourmaline (or Verdelite) is a natural, semi-precious, green Tourmaline gemstone. According to Vedic astrology, this gemstone can be worn as a substitute for emeralds to gain better intellectual ability, refined communication skills, and good health. Green Tourmaline is known for having a broad spectrum of colors and is an earthy energy stone. It has a strong heart chakra vibration to promote compassion- particularly towards oneself. It has a strong healing capacity and helps one connect to nature and is a powerful aid for self-healing. It also connects to the third eye chakra, allowing stronger visualization abilities. It can enhance your creativity and increase your abundance and prosperity.
In Eastern cultures, green tourmaline is the birthstone for May. In Western, it is the modern birthstone for Capricorn.
