Depending on the color of the Tourmaline, the pairings may vary. In general, we can say that Diamond, Gold Sheen Obsidian, and Ruby are among the best crystal combinations for Tourmaline (watermelon), Black Tourmaline, and Red Tourmaline respectively.
Diamond amplifies the healing properties of Watermelon Tourmaline.
Gold Sheen Obsidian, alongside Black Tourmaline, helps you come to grips with your shadow self when it comes to money, and even your shadow self when it comes to your business.
This pairing can also keep your wealth protected.
Finally, Ruby and Red Tourmaline give you hope and motivation when all seems lost, acting in both the physical and the spiritual planes.
Tourmaline is among the most noble of crystals. No matter the color, it absorbs any excesses present in a physical body part, chakra, person, etc.
Pain, fever, and certain aura malfunctions are all excesses.
It’s also a protective stone because, when a spiritual impurity comes your way, it absorbs it before it can reach you.
It’s noble because it’ll often break if the impurity was too great, giving you a warning.
However, in the case of the more expensive pieces, they won’t break if you keep them cleansed and purified.
Tourmaline is also extremely grounding and helps you connect to the present, tangible world.

1. Obsidian and Pink Tourmaline Combination
Obsidian helps you work on your shadow self. It also helps you remember repressed memories that are traumatic.
It is generally recommended that it’s used with another, softer crystal so you don’t suffer from its pain without any support.
Pink Tourmaline does the trick just fine, teaching you all you need to know about Divine Love starting with yourself.
It also helps you reconcile yourself with the idea of being worthy of receiving, which may require unblocking some painful memories.
Shadow work also helps. This pairing can help you attract high-vibrational love, but it will require a lot of work from you first.
Both stones are grounding.
2. Diamond and Watermelon Tourmaline Combination
Watermelon Tourmaline is one of the most healing stones out there.
It combines the nobility and grounding of Tourmaline with the colors green and pink.
Pink heals the heart’s capacity to receive. Pink heals its capacity to give and set boundaries.
When combined, it leads your heart to feel like new.
You will be able to give in a way that keeps replenishing you as well as healing you from any emotional wounds.
However, because of its steep price, it is often available only in small sizes.
Crystals are effective in any size, but, if they are especially small, you can combine them with a diamond to amplify their benefits.
Please note that this combination isn’t recommended for cancer patients or pregnant people.
They should abstain from using Diamond, but Watermelon Tourmaline is safe.
3. Ruby and Green Tourmaline Combination
Ruby gives the wearer hope and energy to do what they need to do even when all hope is lost.
As Ruby is a highly spiritual stone, it can use some of the grounding Tourmaline in general can offer.
Green Tourmaline completes the effect of Ruby by adding a nurturing, supporting element drawn from Mother Earth.
It also helps the wearer stay present. The effect of this pairing is one of absolute support even in the most dire circumstances.
4. Jade and Watermelon Tourmaline Combination
You can program this combination to help you heal emotionally and physically through dreams.
Of course, go to the doctor if you need to, and be rigorous about taking your medication or following any treatments that are recommended.
However, if you sleep with these under your pillow and keep a dream journal, you will be amazed at how much insight you gain.
This is a great combination to get to know your body and your emotions.
This pairing can also heal your finances and any emotional issues you may have around them.
5. Morganite and Pink Tourmaline Combination
Morganite is a step up from Rose Quartz in that it not only teaches you self-love, but it also teaches you about Divine Love.
The kind of love that isn’t possessive and puts the happiness of the other person first.
Divine Love applied to yourself teaches you about detachment, boundaries, and loving from afar if being close to someone you love gives you pain.
Pink Tourmaline does a bit of the same but from a much more grounded place.
This pairing can make you more magnetic and even seductive to the right people and help you work on your Moon and Venus.
6. Gold Sheen Obsidian and Black Tourmaline Combination
The main purpose of this pairing is to protect your wealth, but it has other benefits that go far beyond that.
Gold Sheen Obsidian helps you see threats and your own shadow self and how it affects your wealth.
Black Tourmaline protects by absorbing any negativity directed to your wealth.
They can also help you see your shadow self surrounding the way you exercise power and authority.
It lets you observe how your fears dictate your actions if they do.
All of this while keeping you grounded. Keep in the Feng Shui corner for wealth.
7. Clear Quartz and Watermelon Tourmaline Combination
Watermelon Tourmaline helps you work on emotional healing as well as physical healing.
Of course, always remember that, when it comes to your health, stones are compasses more than they are doctors.
They will guide you to get the right treatment with the right professional, but don’t skip going to the doctor.
Clear Quartz will, in turn, fill the void that Watermelon Tourmaline gradually leaves after getting rid of your illness with light and high-vibrational energy.
Watermelon Tourmaline also has the capacity to fill the void it leaves with Mother Nature, nurturing, and Divine Love, but you may need a faster kick.
That’s where Clear Quartz comes in. Please note that this combination isn’t recommended for cancer patients or pregnant people.
They should abstain from using Clear Quartz, but Watermelon Tourmaline is safe.
8. Sapphire and Blue Tourmaline Combination
Both of these crystals work on the Throat Chakra.
This means that they help you express yourself verbally, as well as assert yourself and set boundaries.
They guide you to be your most authentic self.
However, Sapphires, being a corundum and having a 9 on the Mohs scale (meaning only diamonds are harder and can scratch them), act mostly on the spiritual plane.
This means it addresses the spiritual reasons why you have trouble raising your voice.
This could have to do with past lives or ancestral wounds, or a spiritual obstacle you have to overcome.
The much needed grounding effects of Tourmaline intervene once you pair it with Blue Tourmaline.
This can help you channel the Divine wisdom of Sapphire into tangible terms that can easily be understood.
Blue Tourmaline will also soothe your vocal cords and lead you to speak with kindness, to yourself and others.
Like Mother Earth, it absorbs anything negative that is present in your voice and keeps you from speaking your truth and being authentic.
9. Moss Agate and Brown Tourmaline Combination
Moss Agate can help you recover from illnesses like the flu or a fungal infection (alongside your doctor, of course) by providing much needed support and nurturing.
It can also help you during deeply emotional states. Brown Tourmaline, on the other hand, is the closest thing you’ll find to literal Earth.
It has the capacity to both absorb and nurture, purge and heal.
When you combine these, there is no illness or state of sadness that can bring you down.
10. Ruby and Red Tourmaline (Rubellite) Combination
This is a similar case to that of the Sapphire-Blue Tourmaline combination, with a few twists.
Ruby not only acts on the Heart Chakra but also on the Root Chakra, which is why it gives those who are disheartened hope.
It springs them into action once they are out of love or out of heart. However, like Sapphire, it’s also a corundum.
This means it also scores a 9 on the Mohs scale, acting on the subtler spiritual bodies.
It will address spiritual reasons that contributed to your loss of hope.
Spiritual terms can be difficult to understand for people who are too down-to-earth.
Rubellite can help to translate those terms in ways a person can understand.
It can also remove any excesses that may be present in your Root Chakra, such as a general sense of insecurity.
How to use crystal combinations for Tourmaline
Make Jewelry Out of the Pairings
Colored Tourmaline generally comes in small pieces and can be a bit on the pricey side.
So it makes sense that you use the pieces you get for jewelry, alongside your chosen pairing.
This is why we have mostly paired colored Tourmaline with crystals that are adequate for jewelry.
Tourmaline is so gentle that both the enhancing qualities of gold and the soothing qualities of silver are adequate.
Just remember to keep your jewelry piece cleansed to avoid breakage.
Take the pairing with you on walks
Walks can be quite a meditative experience. They also connect you to Mother Nature and the Earth Star Chakra through the soles of your feet.
In short, they keep the conversation between the Divine and the tangible going while promoting a general state of receptivity and mindfulness, besides being good for both your physical and mental health.
Carry the crystals close to you, such as in your bra or pocket, to have their energy nearby.
You may stop along the way to journal under the shade of the tree if you wish to.
Use Feng Shui in your favor
Among the many principles of Feng Shui, this ancient discipline posits that there are different corners in your house representing different areas in your life.
You may wish to place Gold Sheen Obsidian and Black Tourmaline in the wealth corner to keep your assets, savings, and investments protected.
The Southwest corner has to do with luck in romantic love.
so any combination with Pink Tourmaline you place here will attract a high-vibrational partner or revitalize the state of affairs with your current one.
Obsidian and Pink Tourmaline in the Southwest corner will bring a partner into your life once you’ve done your due diligence with your shadow work.
Because of the presence of Obsidian, it will also keep you protected from low-vibrational suitors.
Morganite and Pink Tourmaline, on the other hand, will help you attract your true spiritual match.
Anything you place on the East of your household will attract good health and maintain it.
So this is a great corner for Moss Agate and Brown Tourmaline or Diamond and Watermelon Tourmaline.
Placing Ruby and Rubellite here will give you more vitality if you are fatigued because of some health reasons.
North is the career corner, so here you can place Sapphire and Blue Tourmaline to help you find a job that’s authentic to who you truly are.
It will help you find a job that’s aligned with your core values and help you assert your boundaries in the workplace.
It’s also a great idea to place these pairings in the North if your job involves writing or communication of some sort, or if it has a strong component of communication.
If you’re negotiating a salary increase, it’s also a good idea to place this pairing here.
Tourmaline is a versatile crystal on its own. It helps to bridge the gap between the spiritual and the tangible world.
This is why it’s a great idea to pair it with crystals such as Diamond, Sapphire, and Ruby, which act on the subtler planes.
As Tourmaline also softens the effects of harsh stones like Obsidian, it’s also a great idea to combine it with this sort of crystal.
