Earth's ultimate protection stone


Black Tourmaline (Schorl) clears negative emotions and thoughts and opens you up to joy and honesty. It aids in the receptivity of inspiration and allows it to flow freely into your mind. It does not hold a charge or store energy and so doesn’t absorb negative energy- it repels it! Carry this stone when you feel surrounded by negativity. It’s great for use in times of crisis or for periods of extreme stress, and it is a powerful protector until you are strong enough in your own power. It’s good for those who are highly sensitive and easily influenced by inharmonious energies. It helps you break through old patterns and fears, and cultivates inner wisdom, courage, stability and patience.

Black Tourmaline is an excellent grounding crystal for meditation and healing, and a small number of Black Tourmalines are double-terminated, ideal for body layouts. The linear flow of energies is enhanced equally in both directions along the crystalline form. [Simmons, 407]

Black Tourmaline soothes panic attacks, especially those caused by dark or confined spaces, or in places where the atmosphere is frightening. It also helps control fears of doctors or dentists. [Eason, 204] Wear this crystal for protection against moaners, whiners, complaining neighbors or emotional vampires who burden you with their problems but do nothing to improve their situations. [Eason, 204]

In the workplace, hold Black Tourmaline for a few minutes when you need to wake up your mind or when you need full concentration. It provides an excellent shield against environmental pollutants, electromagnetic smog like bad frequencies from cellphones and computers, and radiation associated with cell phones, computers, and other electronic equipment. [Eason, 204][Hall, 298] It is a professional support stone for miners and telephone workers. [Mella, 132-133]

In industry, Tourmalines are highly valued as electrical tuning circuits for conducting television and radio frequencies. They are used for their durability since high frequencies can be passed through them without shattering, as many crystals do. [Mella, 110]

Black Tourmaline strengthens the sense of smell, and in that respect, can also enhance the perception of pheromones which produces an aphrodisiac effect. Black Tourmaline is specifically used to treat motion sickness. It may also assist in restoring luster and shine to hair and nails. [Megemont, 184]
