Stone of the Month August – Tourmaline

This month’s topic title, from the Holistic Institute of Wellness, is physical wellness. Of all the categories that came to mind, at first glance my full list of potential crystals & stone was completely overwhelming. I used my own needs to drill down:

Sleep & the Immune System appeared to be the most relevant. Under current circumstances, I can think of nothing more critical for us all than our Immune systems and personally I’ve always needed sleep. I am very aware when my body, and especially my mind, are not well-rested.

You can see from the list below (and these are just the immunity & sleep ones!) I thought this was going to be another tough decision to pick just one. But, would you know? Turns out many of the stones that can aid, boost, and strengthen the immune system also aid with insomnia, sleep generally and/or exhaustion!

Then it became really easy – Tourmaline just kept showing up in all its glorious colors with their magical qualities.

Tourmaline Black – Defends against debilitating dis-ease, strengthens the immune system.
Tourmaline Blue – Benefits immune system. Carries the ray of peace. Helpful for insomnia.
Tourmaline Green – Excellent healer. Releases exhaustion. Treats the immune system.
Tourmaline Pink – Promotes peace and relaxation.
Tourmaline Multicolored Gem – Stimulates immune system and metabolism.

Here are some of the others that came through in my research, this is not an exhaustive list:

  • Amethyst – Treats insomnia, can bring restful sleep. Strengthens the immune system.
  • Ametrine – Clears stress & tension, calms the mind. Helps fatigue. Promotes healing. Strengthens the immune system.
  • Bloodstone – An energy cleanser and immune stimulator. Aids mental exhaustion.
  • Iolite – Creates a strong constitution. Is anti-bacterial.
  • Lapis Lazuli – Boosts the immune system and alleviates insomnia.
  • Lepidolite – Strengthens the immune system, restructures DNA. A calming stone that soothes sleep disturbances.
  • Picture Jasper – Brings comfort, alleviates fear, stimulates immunity.

For stimulating, enhancing, strengthening, bolstering and of, and all-round good for immunity:
Green Calcite, Blue Chalcedony, Green Opal, Quartz – Master Healer, Blue & Aqua Aura Quartz, Ruby in Zoisite, Rhyolite & Shungite.

For good, deep sleep, rest and relief from insomnia:
