For centuries, various cultures have had different beliefs about what virtues the tourmaline can bring to the wearer. In 18th Century literature tourmaline jewelry was considered to be helpful to artists, authors, actors and those in creative fields. In the same century, a Dutch scientist claimed that a tourmaline wrapped in silk placed against the cheek of a feverish child would induce sleep. In Africa, tourmaline was once used to awaken one from “the dream of illusion.” Ancient ceremonies in India included the use of tourmaline as a tool to bring insight and help. It also served to make known who or what was the cause of troubles or evil deeds. Tourmaline was said to be the substance that would grant enlightenment, give power over spiritual affairs and reconcile opposites. In modern times, the stone is used by tribes in Africa, Native Americans, and Australia as a talisman that protects against all dangers
