Many note the discovery of tourmaline during the 1500s in Brazil, where it was mistaken for emerald. Not until the 1800s was tourmaline recognized as it's own gemstone. Whilst all shades of tourmaline are known to inspire creativity, each hue offers a different metaphysical purpose. Hannah Blount Jewelry works with predominately with green tourmaline, watermelon tourmaline and indicolite (blue tourmaline).

Indicolite, or blue tourmaline, is said to help develop intuition and is considered a psychic stone. Indicolite helps with meditation, as it offers a very calming vibration to those who wear it. Indicolite is also said to help aid headaches and migraines.

Watermelon tourmaline is one of the most popular gemstones for working with the heart chakra. These rare beauties combine pink and green tourmaline. Watermelon tourmaline is ideal for those who feel they cannot escape conflict in their emotional lives, as it emits a vibration to inspire balance and serenity.
