I make healing stone jewelry, silver and copper. I use many raw stones, also known as rough stones, and I pair them with silver and copper tubes, beads, and little doodads I create also. These healing crystal and stone jewelry pieces have stones that are thought to have healing powers. This raw modern necklace has raw tourmaline stones, electroformed with copper, and silver beads.
You can find this and my other healing jewelry at http://www.marendunnstudio.com – my kind of hippie, kind of boho shop!
Here is an explanation of the crystal healing properties of tourmaline. As always, this is not in place of modern medical treatment, rather is a partner to good western medicine.
The Health Benefits of Tourmaline Gemstone
Tourmaline emits far infrared radiation in the 4-14 micron wavelength. Electromagnetic radiation in the far infrared range is able to boost the immune system and promote detoxification. In fact, far infrared therapy is widely used in Japan by Kikohshi, people who heal by the laying of hands. 
Make no mistake, tourmaline is a powerful ally when your body is in need of detoxification. The far infrared rays created by tourmaline actually produce the same resonance in the body that is normally found in water. This form of resonance absorption helps relieve stress, increase alertness, stimulate circulation, and boost the immune system. Here are just a few of the powerful effects from tourmaline.
- Helps detoxification
- Supports fat loss
- Reduces water retention
- Improves circulation
- Supports the liver and kidneys
- Promotes a healthy mood
- Helps eliminate toxic metals 
- Reduces lactic acids and free fatty acids
