Riverstone & Blue Tourmaline are vitalizing gemstones for an energetic system called “Acute Flows.” These flows help your body:
- Meet urgent situations with heightened intelligence for more efficient self-healing.
- Channel your body’s healing energy after injuries or other crises.
- Combine your healing energies into mixtures that meet the needs of unique situations in your body and in your life.
- Open channels to flows of fluids that move only occasionally, such as tears, urine, and digestive juices.
- Balance masculine and feminine energies.
- Channel its energies for maximum exertion such as during childbirth or exercise.
And when you are experiencing:
- Resistance to healing and making positive changes.
- Difficulty meeting challenges.
- Disharmony with your life partner.
- Uncertainty about staying in a relationship.
- A desire to enhance the love and appreciation in your relationship.
- Lack of creative flow or reduced creative expression.
- A desire to cry but you cannot, or when you want to stop crying but cannot.
- Poor digestion.
What is the Acute Flows System?
Life depends on the movement of energies. In a healthy body, some energies move constantly, such as those associated with the circulatory, respiratory, lymphatic, chakra, and endocrine systems. In addition, energies should continually move through the aura toward and away from the body, along the personal vortex, and through the central chakra channel.
Other energy flows move when they are needed, such as those associated with digestion, crying, or a full bladder. These are obvious situations when a temporary movement of fluids is warranted. These temporary flows are managed by the acute flows system.
After a crisis, this acute flows system responds by channeling whatever energies the body has on hand to the areas that need them. It also mixes these energies into a formula with just the right proportions of energetic ingredients. These energies can include those associated with hormones, lymph, immunoglobulins, platelets, and more.
When not engaged in supporting the body through a crisis, the acute flows system often supports the immune system in its responsive flows.
To envision how the acute flows system works, imagine a star (your highest intelligence) out of which extends many branches, like those of a tree. Although all branches share a common origin, each acts independently. Each focuses on one set of issues or conditions in the body. You may have one branch devoted to healing a skin infection, another to maintaining health in the digestive track, another to keeping back unwanted energies from an angry relative, another to ward off harmful EMF, another helping to repair an injured knee, etc. Tasks assigned to a particular branch shift as the body heals or takes on additional stress.
Most people have fewer than a dozen main branches. Each fractalizes into an ever-increasing number of smaller but identical branches in order to cover a great deal of territory or related types of situations. The fractals aren’t infinite, reaching only as far as needed to fulfill the body’s needs. When a need arises, the fractals lengthen to respond to the need. As the body heals, one branch after another pulls away because its contribution is no longer required. It may also shorten to a previous length. Eventually, only one branch will keep watch over the affected area, and finally maybe none at all.
Key to the health of these branches is autonomy. Each one must be able to act independently and have a clearly defined identity, even as their fractals often intertwine or work in tandem. When they intertwine, unique mixes of energies provide healing assistance your body makes for itself.
When health of the acute flows system deteriorates, the distinction between one branch and another blurs. Their energies start to mix inaccurately or get channeled to the wrong destinations. For example, energies destined for an injured knee may be routed instead to the digestive tract. The digestive tract gets flooded with both physical and energetic substances designed to respond to something else entirely. This compounds issues that may be already present in the digestive system, increases confusion, and delays healing there. Plus, the injured knee can’t heal to its fullest potential.
Benefits of Riverstone
When you wear Riverstone, its energy catches onto the energy flows already in motion throughout your body and aura. It then settles out and accumulates along the insides of the vessel walls that channel this energy, like the stones in a riverbed.
Here is where Riverstone has its greatest effect. Riverstone energy shores up, smooths out, and strengthens these channels. Doing so evens-out inconsistencies and irregularities in the flows, and helps the flows overcome blockages and stagnancies. The flows become smoother and often speed up to a more normal pace.
Riverstone is called for when critical energy flows become compromised. Riverstone also supports certain flows or processes to speed up to normal pace, or to work more intensely for short periods of time, such as during childbirth or intensive exercise.
Benefits of Blue Tourmaline
The principle energetic action of Blue Tourmaline brings together and takes apart energies, particularly the branches involved in the acute flows system. The movement is not rhythmic, but occurs as needed.
This action encourages the branches to come together when needed and to encourage their graceful separation when their work is done. Only then can the branches take on new tasks. Conditions in the body can go untreated by the body’s own healing energies if acute flow branches are tangled. Blue Tourmaline energy helps them separate and retract as soon as their job is done.
Blue Tourmaline energy also helps coalesce the masculine and feminine creative energies within a person, in order to enhance, organize, and distribute the individual’s creative forces. Of course, the gemstone energy can also support harmony among partners. Only one person in a relationship need wear Blue Tourmaline, as the gemstone’s energies radiate within the space of both partners.
Effects of Riverstone & Blue Tourmaline on the Acute Flows System
When Riverstone is supported by symbiotic Blue Tourmaline, the acute flows system is vitalized and its action supported. The flow correction and enhancement provided by Riverstone is supported by the flow organization and distribution effect of the Blue Tourmaline. The wearer’s body can direct a supply of its own healing energies to areas that need it most.
With the energies of Riverstone & Blue Tourmaline present, the fractalization of the acute flows branches can more easily lengthen, shorten, combine, separate, and recombine as needed.
Therapeutic-quality Riverstone is an opaque earthstone, tan to cream colored, whose coloration is somewhat evenly distributed. It is typically speckled with tiny brown, tan, white, gray or black flecks. These speckles support the Riverstone energy unless they stand out so much that their energies overtake the Riverstone’s energy. Yellowish or reddish marking are avoided for that reason. Riverstone should be well rounded, without dents or chipped drillholes, and highly polished. Our standard quality is graded 3A for color, clarity, candescence and cut. Riverstone would earn a 4A grade for color if its coloration leaned toward cream rather than tan, and for clarity if its specks were particularly small and evenly distributed.
Therapeutic-quality Blue Tourmaline
If there was such a thing as a rainbow of blue, then Blue Tourmaline would be an excellent example of it. Blue Tourmaline colors come in every hue of blue, and each one has a range of tones. The tones set the color grade. Our 3A color is a distinct blue, which may be slightly light or dark in tone. A color grade of 4A corresponds to colors that are particularly clear and bright; we give a grade of 5A when the color is particularly intense. In a necklace color is graded based on the lowest grade Blue Tourmaline in the set.
Clarity is based on colorless cracks, which may be minimally present in our 3A clarity. When a gem appears nearly devoid of inclusions, we give it a 4A clarity grade. A 5A grade would be bestowed if the gem appeared flawless.
Gemstone spheres naturally accumulate unwanted energies when you wear them. They collect what they’ve helped your body to release—or what they pick up from the environment during use or when stored. If your necklaces aren’t cleansed often enough or completely enough, unwanted energies build up. The gemstones’ therapeutic value will be limited and you’ll no longer feel drawn to wear them.

Storing Your Gemstones
Arrange your therapeutic gemstone necklaces and bracelets in a neat spiral with their clasp open. This orientation concentrates the gemstones’ energies and helps them rejuvenate themselves. Use a necklace tray to keep them organized. The tray also keeps the gemstone energies separated, which makes selecting the right necklace easier. Learn More.
Store your therapeutic gemstone jewelry away from sources of electromagnetic radiation, such as laptops, television sets, and cell phones.
Gemstone Aid After First Aid
The Riverstone & Blue Tourmaline formula is an excellent one to use as soon as possible after an injury, shock, sudden pain, or other physical or emotional crisis. It engages the body’s healing energies and directs them to quickly and efficiently gather around the affected areas.
Immediately after a crisis, the body’s highest intelligence assesses what happened and how bad it is. When the gemstones are worn, it takes note of the resources that have been provided. The body’s intelligence will use these resources to rearrange the acute flows branches, depending on the importance of the new crisis. If a priority, then other branches may disengage from healing projects they’ve been attending to, and reengage to support the new crisis. The gemstone energies make sure this transition is smooth, quick, and efficient.
In this case, wear the gemstones as soon as possible after the crisis occurs, after you have applied first aid and taken steps to contact urgent care providers, if needed. Continue to wear the necklace, or keep it within three feet of you, until you feel more balanced and that your body’s own healing energies are well engaged and working for you. This may take at least a week or two, although you may notice the gemstones’ support begin almost immediately.
What about long-term, chronic issues?
In this case, acute flow branches may be stuck in place, or may have become sluggish, thus inhibiting the flow of healing energy. Wearing Riverstone & Blue Tourmaline can refresh the flows within the branches, and help the body assess which branches are still needed. When unneeded branches disengage from a condition in the body, they are free to assist with other issues. The condition they left can now receive a more tailored mix of healing energies, and is now free to take a step on its healing journey.
Riverstone & Blue Tourmaline for Relationships
These gemstones can also support harmony in your relationship, by improving the balance of masculine and feminine energies that flow within yourself and your partner, as well as between the two of you. In this case, only one partner needs to wear the necklace, as its energies will be broadcast throughout the space the two of you occupy. If you are together only at night, then sleep with the necklace in or nearby the bed, so that it is equidistant to both of you.
Because the acute flows system also helps separate branches that are no longer supporting a healing process, this system is also engaged during a relationship separation. If the separation is painful or seems impossible, it may be because branches of healing energies are still entangled between the partners. Vitalize the acute flows system to encourage it to divide, disconnect, and disengage branches the partners once shared. When your acute flows system is more autonomous, you will be too. If this is the reason you want to wear Riverstone & Blue Tourmaline, wear it daily.
The Riverstone & Blue Tourmaline formula may also be helpful for couples who aren’t sure if they should stay together or not. Wearing this necklace may give them some clarity. As the gemstone energies strengthen or rearrange the acute flow branches the couple may be sharing, the partners should find greater clarity about their situation. With fewer energetic entanglements or more efficient energetic sharing and support, it’s easier to make wise choices.
Wearing Riverstone / Blue Tourmaline with Other Necklaces
When you wear a Riverstone and Blue Tourmaline necklace, it will channel the life-giving resources you have available to the areas that need them. If you are wearing other necklaces, including other jewelry, their energies will be included, as they are resources too. This ability of the Riverstone/Blue Tourmaline combination occurs because of its ability to vitalize the acute flows system.
Gemstone Therapy Practitioners who have identified gemstones that can support a client’s target area or condition now have a means to funnel those gemstones’ energies to that target. This would include the gemstones used to make a custom gemandala. Make the custom gemandala first, then place the Riverstone with Blue Tourmaline necklace on your client’s body, or have her wear it, and then apply the custom gemandala.
The Guardian of Blue Tourmaline is a portly being, with kind eyes and a soft round effeminate face that contrasts with the rectangular heavy blue velvet jacket that consumes his torso. Communicating with him was the most difficult of all the guardians I’d ever met. It seemed as though even telepathically, we spoke different languages, although I suspected that the interference was mine, and probably due to my unconscious resistance to his gemstone’s effects. It took a few months of trying before we found a common wavelength upon which to communicate.
We met in a dream-world forest. The trees were winter bare and grew narrow and tall. The branches of each one barely touched its neighbor.
“You resist the gift of Blue Tourmaline,” he said.
I knew this. “How?”
“The channels that guide your body’s self-healing energies have wanted to focus on certain things, and you’ve had other ideas. You were not yet completely committed to your own healing journey.”
We were walking slowly among the trees, and the land was lit by a bright full moon. I heard the sound of water bubbling over rocks in a nearby stream. The air was perfumed with gardenia.
What he said sounded true.
“Healing requires a personal surrender to your own journey. This can be done no matter how rich your life is, or how many things you want to give attention to. You can be busy and heal. The two are independent.
“Wearing the Riverstone and Blue Tourmaline has made it easier,” I said. “I feel more accepting of my circumstances. I give myself more time, and forgive myself more freely when I do.” I’d also noticed that my partnership with my husband had deepened. It was allowing more love, gratitude, and freedom into our lives. I sensed that at least some of this growth was the result of the Riverstone and Blue Tourmaline’s energies, since I’d been wearing them for weeks.
“Blue Tourmaline harmonizes masculine and feminine energies. This action is due to the fact that this crystal is usually found growing among Pink Tourmaline (which vitalizes feminine energies) and Green Tourmaline (which vitalizes masculine energies). This was not always the case.
“Originally, Green and Pink Tourmaline grew side by side, or alongside White Tourmaline, which helped to keep the matrix in which they grew intact. This also kept separate the masculine and feminine forces that are associated with these two crystals. In time, a problem arose in which these twin forces became too separate, and in fact had difficulty coming together.
“At that time, which was indeed a long time ago, this problem was evidenced on Earth among her people who were becoming increasingly sterile. The situation was accompanied by a conflict between masculine and feminine forces on a planetary scale. When the Earth feels an imbalance, so too will her people.
“This was when Blue Tourmaline started to form alongside Green Tourmaline. The Earth, who embodies a greater proportion of feminine energy, was already well represented by Pink Tourmaline. Her nemesis at the time, which embodied the masculine energy, needed to back off.
“Blue Tourmaline energy provided an opportunity for intelligent balance, harmony, and reconciliation among the two forces. The energy of this crystal helped the Earth heal and it helped her people heal too.
“Today, Blue Tourmaline can still be worn for this purpose. It’s energy also brings together other healing forces within a wearer’s body and being, and helps them focus on a task. It can support any crisis of body, mind, and spirit that needs healing attention.”
Our necklaces comprise all the innovations in gemstone necklace therapy, to ensure you have the most effective healing tools available.
- Our gemstones are natural and therapeutic-quality, which means they are at the top of their class in color, clarity, and brightness. Although quality parameters vary for each individual gemstone, we carefully select every bead to make sure you get the very best.
- We use spheres and rondels because they radiate the gemstones’ energies throughout the wearer’s body and aura.
- All our necklaces are strung with a symbiotic gemstone that can catalyze, support, or strengthen the work of the primary gem. The difference between necklaces that contain only one type of stone and those strung with their partners is extraordinary. Not only are symbiotic necklaces more beautiful and feel better energetically, they also work more effectively and efficiently. A primary gem and its symbiotic encourage healthy relationships and can help balance the forces of yin and yang throughout your body and being.
- All necklaces have a clasp, which we feel is essential. Clasps allow necklaces to breathe. When you open a clasp, the gems release a significant amount of unwanted energies they collected during use. With a clasp, you can arrange the necklace in a spiral during storage so that the gems can regenerate themselves. In addition, clasps make it possible to wrap gems around a therapy wand to apply in the aura, or lay them across your body for an easy and restful self-therapy.
- We string using nylon thread. Nylon is strong, doesn’t fray or stretch like other threads, and is made of a simple chain of molecules. Nylon energy has a negligible effect on a therapeutic necklace.
