Tourmaline is the name from the Indian tourmaline, "covered with dust". Tourmaline is piezoelectric and thus attracts dust and ash particles. The Indians knew tourmalines from Hindu Kush and Sri Lankan. It is the most complex silicate in nature. The Japanese masters of Zen Buddhism regarded him as an immobile living entity. Brahmanism identified tourmaline with shivaling, the pillar of the absolute effulgence of Shiva, the king of yogis. Cut is used in jewelry.
