Tugtupite is a rare pink crystal that holds the harmony of deep love within it. This stone has the pureness of intense deep love.
Its vibration has the intensity to reawaken lost love and unremembered passion.
The resonance of this pink stone within you, may remove your sense of neutrality or apathy about love, if you acquiesce to its loving energy.
It has a loving heart chakra and thymus or higher heart chakra energy that will transform anyone who chooses to embrace its intensity.
The meaning of this stone is related to the location where it comes from, and where it was first discovered, in Tugtup in Greenland.
Although this is the major place in the world where it is found, small deposits have also been found in Russia and Canada.
It is a type of fluorescent beryllium silicate, and has a quite interesting quality, in that it changes color when it encounters heat.
This may be the heat of your body, or when it is under bright light or left out in the sun.
Its color may be white, pale pink and any shade of pink through to a deep crimson. You may find that although it may start out white, or quite pale pink in color.
But it turns to the deeper pink you see in the photos after you begin to use it on a regular basis. Tugtupite is related to Blue Sodalite, in that it has a very similar structure within the stone.
One of the readers of this site comes from Narsaq in Greenland, where she tells me Tugtupite is found.
She explained that Tugtu means reindeer and that there is a local legend told by the old inuits in Narsaq regarding this stone.
The story is about a pregnant woman who went to live with the reindeer in the mountains. The legend says that the blood that came out when she gave birth to her child is what colored the stone red.
Often this stone is mixed with other types of stone, and you may get veins of these other stones mixed through it, making for a beautiful specimen.

Use it in combination with Dioptase, Vesuvianite or Variscite. Another powerful stone to use in combination with this stone, for activation of the higher heart chakra is the lovely red and green Anyolite also known as Ruby Zoisite.
As you begin to experience old memories that you are releasing by using this stone, you may feel the need for self forgiveness. Tugtupite will help you to feel compassionate towards both yourself and others.
But you may be helped by combining it with other thymus chakra stones that stimulate compassion, such as the lovely Vivianite. Green Selenite also resonates in that area, and helps you to forgive yourself and others.
A strong and deeply powerful combination is with Cryolite and Nuummite to heal the emotions.
Used with Nuummite alone, this is effective to aid you to cut cords, binding you to past life experiences.
The combined energy of these three stones will allow you to let go of others who may need forgiveness, and to move forward in your life.
This is a stone that will aid spiritual growth, and if this is your main reason for using it try combining it with any of the high crystal energy stones.
