Also known as Lithia Tourmaline, this Rock Faery art may be used in my Tarot deck; its key energy is as Activator, facilitating heart balance and interconnectedness. It unites the chakras and universe to our planet.

For those of you who are sticklers for precision geology, please note that this painting has my own personal artistic license, meaning the tirgonal-ditrigonal pyramidal crystal system of this Elbaite (Tourmaline) is presented here in a partial slab/single terminated tri-colorish, with liberties.

Happy Summer Solstice everybody, welcome to the Seelie half of the year!

Medium: Watercolor & Ink.
Rendered: (C) 06-27-09 Ora Moon
