Frequently Asked Questions
What is tourmaline?
Tourmaline is not a single mineral, but a group of minerals with a similar crystal structure. Different tourmalines contain different elements. Tourmaline is found in many different colors. Tourmaline is often confused with other types of gemstones.
What is tourmaline made of?
Each variety of tourmaline has its own chemical formula, but tourmaline always has a six-atom ring. The elements found in tourmalines can include aluminum, boron, silicon, chromium, oxygen, hydrogen, potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, iron and lithium. Tourmalines are among the most complicated chemical formulas of all minerals.
Since aluminum can be toxic, should I be concerned about the aluminum in tourmaline?
Absolutely not, since the aluminum stays in the tourmaline and never enters the human body.
Is tourmaline a crystal?
Yes, all tourmaline minerals have a crystal structure. Those crystals can be long and slender, thick prisms or column like crystals. Tourmaline is distinguished by three-sided prisms. No other common mineral has a three-sided prism.
What types of rocks contain Tourmaline?
Tourmaline is found in igneous rocks, which are from volcanic lava, in particular from granite and granite pegmatite. Tourmaline is also found in metamorphic rocks, such as schist and marble. Metamorphic rocks change from other rocks under pressure and over time.
Where is tourmaline geographically found?
California became a large producer of tourmaline in the early 1900s. Almost every color of tourmaline can be found in Brazil. In the late 1990s, copper-containing tourmaline was found in Nigeria. Africa and Afghanistan also have tourmaline mines.
Why does it feel like the tourmaline products are producing heat?
The tourmaline products are very energy efficient. Those particles absorb body heat and then transform that heat energy into far infrared energy. That therapeutic energy is then transmitted back into the body.
What is so special about far infrared energy?
Far infrared energy can stimulate cells and tissues to recover and heal more rapidly. Far infrared has been used in saunas for healing for thousands of years. It is considered a promising treatment modality for healing.
Are there other energies that tourmaline can emit?
Yes, there are two other energies that tourmaline crystals can produce:
Tourmaline crystals are piezoelectric, which means that when a crystal is heated, from body heat, compressed or vibrated, the tourmaline can convert that energy into an electrical potential charge. This charge will form at opposite ends of the crystal. This produces negative ions, which are associated with a more alkaline body pH, scavenging free radicals, reducing inflammation, healing at a more rapid rate and anti-aging.
Tourmaline crystals are also pyroelectric, which means that they can actually generate a weak electric current from being stimulated by heat, compression or vibration. This is like having a tens unit without batteries.
What are the health benefits of tourmaline?
Tourmaline is a therapeutic mineral that enhances the flow of chi energy and reduces oxidative stress, to maintain health and wellness. Tourmaline also increases blood flow, blood oxygen concentration and can even help to generate new blood vessels.
Is the tourmaline particle size important?
Yes! Tourmaline powders exhibit improved far infrared emission properties as the particle size decreases. Tourmaline works best with nanometer-sized particles, which are the smallest particles that can be manufactured today. That is why we use nanometer size tourmaline particles in our products.
Can tourmaline actually help you to get better sleep?
Yes, the tourmaline blanket is subtle but powerful. It supports sound, deep and restful sleep and helps to generate alpha waves and serotonin. Tourmaline can radiate an energy of 8-13Hz per second, which matches exactly to the alpha wave frequency in the human brain.
What makes FIR Industries different from other companies that have far infrared producing fabrics?
FIR Industries is the only company today that can infuse nanometer-sized tourmaline particles into fabrics and bond those crystals to that fabric. That is why we get such great results. The quantity of nanometer-sized tourmaline particles is unsurpassed.
Can you get a positive drug test from using tourmaline products?
Absolutely not. Nothing foreign physically enters the body. The benefits from tourmaline are from the different therapeutic energies that the tiny crystals produce.

The Healing Power of Tourmaline Crystals
Far Infra Red Energy
The sun heats up the earth during the day and the earth then emits far infrared radiation at night, which are the same healing energies emitted by a sauna. Tourmaline is also known to emit far infra red energy.
It is theorized that body heat is absorbed by tourmaline and then it radiated back into the body, accelerating the healing process.
These negative ions are odorless, tasteless and can naturally stimulate increased levels of the mood-enhancing hormone serotonin, which is nicknamed “the feel good hormone”.
Prozac also increases serotonin levels, but has many potential side effects. Serotonin is well documented to reduce the feelings of depression, relieve stress, relax and boosting daytime energy levels, produce quality sleep at night and wake up more refreshed.
The earth is more negatively charged than the human body. Most people have too many positive ions, which are associated with acidity, free radicals, aging, oxidative stress and chronic inflammation. Being in contact with the earth makes us feel better, since we gain negative ions from the earth. Mountains, waterfalls, beaches and oceans, all naturally have more negative ions. Did you ever feel the air after a thunderstorm? It is invigorating and chockfull of negative ions. We can breathe in negative ions, or absorb them through our skin. The geomagnetic field on the earth’s surface is produced by the north and south poles and averages about 0.45 gauss. The gauss of human body is a mere fraction of that of the earth’s.
Tourmaline crystals mimic the earth with a north and south pole of their own and can act as electron donors and produce more negative ions. Negative ions are associated with more alkalinity, less free radicals, anti-aging, reduced oxidative stress and inflammation reduction.
Each cell in the human body has an electric field. It is theorized that the human body is the healthiest when the frequency of the electric field is that of the earth, at 7.83 HZ. This is referred to as Schumann resonances. Tourmaline crystals are like “mini earths”. They have a north and south pole and their own electrical field, similar to the earth’s. It is hypothesized that tourmaline helps the body to resonate closer to the ideal 7.83 HZ, therefore balancing the body closer to the optimum function.
Studies of people with winter and chronic depression, done by Columbia University, show that negative ion generators, relieve depression as well as antidepressants. Negative ions increase the flow of oxygen to the brain, resulting in higher alertness, decreased drowsiness and increased energy.
Tourmaline-Infused blankets, offer all of the benefits of negative ions. That is why they are considered by many as “First Aid For Your Mind & Your Body!”
