The Power of the Gemstone
Tourmaline is one of the rare gemstones that come in all colours of the rainbow. In fact, its name, tourmaline (from thuramali in the language of Sri Lankan people) originally applied to a variety of multi colour stones. Because of its multicolour nature, the tourmaline is also one of the rare semi-precious gemstones that easily evokes a genuine vibration of happiness and lightness of being.
October Birthstone Tourmaline is the only mineral, located on the earth, which have a long-lasting source of energy (like the sun). It is called a nugget of energy or electric stone. Metaphysically, this is considered to create strong channels of energy for clearing and purification, as well as protection. The piezoelectric property of the stone can help polarize people’s emotions and energy with a magnetic-electric charge that appears when the crystal is rubbed or heated.

Don’t store tourmaline with harder gemstones or other materials that might rub against it and cause damage. As with all gems, protect tourmaline from scratches and sharp blows that could shatter it. Also, avoid large temperature changes that can cause the crystal to fracture (such as leaving it near a heater vent or in a hot car).
Do not clean tourmaline in a home ultrasonic cleaner. Tourmaline jewelry can be cleaned with a mild solution of gentle dishwashing detergent and water at home. Soak the stone for 10-20 minutes, then wipe gently but firmly with a wash towel.
I love burgundy, the biggest color trend this season, and since we’re so obsessed, we thought we’d put together a treasury collection. It is the fresh new color for fall. It goes with just about every other color like grey, camel, black and forest green and has a lot of attitude. You can say Burgundy is the new black.

COLORS! Love these deep hot colors for late summer as seen in CR Fashion Book, such a great way to get as much fun in the sun as we possibly can. There is a feminine mystique that is reflected throughout the palette, inspired by everything from photography and retro architecture, to exotic landscapes and faraway destinations. Love this Sangria, an exotic red that evokes a sense of glamorous adventures. Dance and sing until midnight, and don’t forget your favorite sunglasses and the sunscreen.
