Traditionally used for scrying during shamanic rituals, Tourmaline is regarded as an excellent tool for all types of spiritual work, especially in the realms of personal transformation and balance. Watermelon Tourmaline in particular is known as the "super-activator" of the heart chakra – linking it to the higher self and fostering love, tenderness, and friendship. It also has a strong affinity for the garden and plants, and is thought to enhance one's connection to the wisdom of the plant kingdom.

The Merkaba opens the mind to increased awareness and promotes deep conscious interconnection.
The back of this Pinecone has been anointed with our "Third Eye" emblem, cast in Sterling Silver.
