The Benefits of Wearing Green Tourmaline
Excerpt from Gemisphere Therapeutic Gemstones by Michael Katz.
The Mission of Green Tourmaline
Green Tourmaline balances the masculine and feminine aspects within a
man, empowering him to realize his full potential. It carries the
masculine ray, which vitalizes the masculine aspect in all living
beings. Green Tourmaline strengthens every molecule in a man's body,
tones his reproductive system, and reverses any disharmonious tendencies
in his body, emotions, and mind. Green Tourmaline broadens a man's
awareness as it maximizes the flow of his life force, granting him
courage, vigor, and vitality.

Benefits of Wearing Therapeutic Green Tourmaline Necklace
Green Tourmaline balances and empowers men by harmonizing the masculine and feminine
aspects within them. It carries the masculine ray, which vitalizes the masculine
aspect in all living beings. Green Tourmaline gives a man the strength, courage, and
self-confidence he needs to realize his full potential. It broadens a man’s awareness
as it strengthens every molecule in his body.
Masculine and feminine energies are fundamental components of life, and both must be
present for life to exist. Like the color rays, masculine and feminine energies have
gemstone carriers: Green Tourmaline carries the male energy, and Pink Tourmaline
carries the female energy. These gemstones act as energy sources to keep each gender
independent and strong.
Fundamental to an understanding of Green Tourmaline is that all men and women have and
express both male and female energies. No man expresses 100 percent masculine energy;
nor does a woman express solely feminine energy. For a man to be healthy and strong,
he needs to have and express an appropriate balance of masculine and feminine energies.
Any degree of gender imbalance can diminish his strength and energy. Green Tourmaline
can help men resolve gender imbalances.
The way energies flow in a man’s body differs in many respects from the way energies
flow in a woman’s. Green Tourmaline resonates with the way energies flow in a male
body, and it strengthens and uplifts the male flow. When a man wears Green Tourmaline,
it maximizes the life force flowing through him.
Green Tourmaline also enhances the chakras’ abilities to receive and release energies,
thereby making all energies required by the body, including color rays, more available
to the body. Green Tourmaline helps strengthen and heal a man's endocrine and
reproductive systems. Because the endocrine system regulates so many vital functions,
his whole body naturally becomes stronger and more energetic.
Green Tourmaline promotes balance in the physical, emotional, and mental bodies. It
does this by strengthening the weakest link in the chain. First, its energy fills a
man’s aura and gathers information about all his bodies. Then it identifies and focuses
its energy on the weakest area of his physical body. When the physical body has
achieved a certain degree of balance, the Tourmaline’s energy moves to the weakest
area of his emotional body and works there. Finally, it moves to the weakest part of
his mental body. When the mental body has been brought to a certain degree of balance,
the Tourmaline’s energy returns its focus to the physical body and starts the cycle
Each time the Green Tourmaline cycles through a man’s body, emotions, and mind, it
takes each of them to a higher level of strength and healing. This process continues
for as long as the Tourmaline is worn. Even after wearing Green Tourmaline for only
a day, a man often feels physically stronger. If he continues to wear it, he will
find himself becoming emotionally stronger and then mentally stronger.
Before the weakest link can be strengthened, it must be recognized. It takes courage
to recognize one's weaknesses and to face them. Therefore, when a man first puts on
Green Tourmaline, the Tourmaline's initial response is to give a feeling of strength,
courage, and self-confidence. This occurs as soon as Green Tourmaline touches a
Any man, even the healthiest on Earth, can benefit from wearing Green Tourmaline
because, as far as health is concerned, there is always another step to take. As a
man attains greater health, his attention often turns away from his physical problems
to encompass a greater understanding and awareness of himself and of life. This
eventually leads to self-mastery. Before one can become a master of spirit, one must
first master one's physical body, emotions, memory, mind, and intuition. Green
Tourmaline helps a man achieve this mastery.
Time Guidelines and Amount to Wear
Because of the intensity of Green Tourmaline's effects, men should wear only one necklace of Green Tourmaline at a time. Some men may even find it uncomfortable to wear one necklace 24 hours a day.
Some may want to wear it only during the day and not at night; for some, even this may be too much. If a man wears Green Tourmaline too long, he may experience a headache or some irritability. If this
occurs, he should remove the Tourmaline as soon as he feels any discomfort. The next day, he should put the necklace back on for a short period, and then ease into wearing it regularly by gradually
increasing the time he wears it each day.
No matter how many hours a day that a man wears Green Tourmaline, he must wear it every day. Only then will he experience Green Tourmaline’s greatest healing effects. After wearing a necklace of
rounded Green Tourmaline daily for a month, the effects will be unmistakable.
Green Tourmaline and Aventurine
Although Green Tourmaline and Dark Green Aventurine both initiate physical healing,
they are two different tools with two different actions. Some people's
conditions require force and power to be healed; others call for a gentler approach;
and still others require a combination of the two. Green Tourmaline works with force
and power. Compared to the power of Tourmaline, Aventurine's work is quite gentle.
Too much healing force and power can make some people virtually explode, especially
if someone is already a pent-up dynamo of stress and tension. Such an individual would
do better to wear Aventurine for several weeks before wearing Green Tourmaline. The
Aventurine will help his cells begin the process of opening up and releasing their
However, if the pent-up person is also very weak, he can wear a short, lightweight
necklace of Green Tourmaline, a longer necklace of Quartz, and an even longer necklace
of Dark Green Aventurine. In someone who is both very weak and very tight, the forces
of the two green gemstones will be balanced by the presence of the Quartz. The
Aventurine will make the physical-healing changes while the Green Tourmaline gives
the body strength.
Green Tourmaline and Women
In general, women should not wear Green Tourmaline, except for short periods. If a
woman wore a necklace of Green Tourmaline for an extended period, her masculine nature
would eventually overwhelm her feminine nature. One imbalance after another would
manifest. Her emotional strength would be crushed, and eventually she would suffer
from hormone imbalances. Therefore, it's best for women to wear Green Tourmaline no
more than several days a month.
However, at times it can be beneficial for a woman to bolster her masculine energy for
example, if she is experiencing a deficiency of such energy. Symptoms of such a
deficiency can include difficulty asserting herself in the world; a sense that she is
continually being put down, abused, or manipulated; or a perceived lack of feminine
identity. Wearing a therapeutic Green Tourmaline necklace for a short period may help
correct these imbalances.
Another example of a situation in which a woman can benefit from wearing Green
Tourmaline is when she is training for or competing in an athletic event. The Green
Tourmaline can help improve endurance and strength.
Pink Tourmaline and Men
Unlike Green Tourmaline, which is primarily for use by men, Pink Tourmaline can be used freely by both men and women.
Creating Harmony Between Mates
Disharmonies often arise in relationships between mates. Whatever the cause, a
wonderful therapy for ailing relationships is for the man to wear Green Tourmaline
and the woman to wear Pink Tourmaline. If they are not having problems, this therapy
will strengthen their relationship.
How to Recognize Therapeutic-Quality Green Tourmaline
Green Tourmaline’s natural color varies from olive- to emerald-green, in shades that
range from light to medium-dark. Green Tourmaline that is dull, cloudy, or not true in
color is non-therapeutic. Therapeutic-quality Green Tourmaline is relatively free of
inclusions and is radiant in appearance.
