ATTRIBUTES A stone of integration, Tugtupite bridges the compassionate heart with the illuminated mind and anchors unconditional love in the world. It teaches the power of self-love - without which it is not possible to value yourself or another, to give or receive love or to know intimacy. An exceedingly peaceful stone aligned to the pink flame of pure love, Tugtupite has the rare quality of tenebrescence, meaning that on exposure to sun or ultra-violet light, or on being worn or held, its white or pale pink colour deepens to crimson. It fluoresces bright red under ultra-violet light.
Inuit legend says that Tutu, a reindeer girl, went into the mountains to give birth and where her precious, life-giving blood fell, Tugtupite was formed. The Inuit also say that this stone awakens forgotten love and intensifies libido and lovers' passion, causing the stone to glow fiery red. One of the best stones for opening and cleansing the heart chakras, especially the heart seed, this stone signifies romance, passion and fertility. It deepens and expands love, bringing an unconditional quality to all relationships, and aligns and integrates all the chakras with the heart and higher heart chakras so that love is expressed through every act and thought.
Spiritually, when placed over the higher heart chakra of someone whose vibrations have been raised sufficiently, Tugtupite acts like a shaman blowing into the chakra to awaken the dormant channel that connects the compassionate heart to higher states of consciousness. It Shaped literally accesses a new level of love to facilitate the vibrational shift and the birth of the light body" in the everyday world.

It draws out and transforms your own anger into creative energy and is the perfect stone to assist recovery from a 'psychic mugging'.
