Sohana explains the powerful properties of this beautiful stone.
I love to write about gemstones and especially the ones that are very useful. Black Tourmaline falls into this category and has been respected through the ages for its powerful properties. It is a shamanic tool and was believed by magicians to protect them from demons and other negative forces. The other name for it is Schorl and it was called this after a town in Germany where it was found in tin mines before the 1400’s.
Black Tourmaline shields the wearer from the harmful effects of electromagnetic radiation from televisions, computers, microwave ovens, mobile phones and other sources of these damaging waves. It transforms negativity into positive flow and balances the left and right sides of the brain. By balancing the energy in the body and helping to eliminate toxins, it decreases stress, calms anxiety, and promotes emotional stability.
Besides aiding with modern day stresses, Black Tourmaline is well-known as a talisman for protection. It deflects and dispels negative energies and this includes one’s own negative thoughts and internal conflicts. It is a powerful stone for grounding and is electrical in nature, making a connection between the Earth and the human spirit.
I find that all of the above mentioned attributes of this stone are not a fairy tale…it actually works. I keep a large Black Tourmaline crystal next to my computer as it gives protection from electromagnetic radiation. Several of my clients have also given me the same feedback. By wearing a pendant or necklace of Black Tourmaline, you can protect yourself while around computers, cell phones and other sources of electromagnetic energy. When I have to go to the dentist, I make sure to wear my pendant as it calms me and I feel a sense of peace rather than dread of that drill!
Tourmaline is found in several colours such as green, pink, yellow, and orange but black is the most common. It is easy to wear as a pendant and is quite hard. I dropped mine on a tile floor and it was fine although I wouldn’t suggest trying this.
Black Tourmalinated Quartz is Quartz Crystal containing rutiles of Black Tourmaline and this stone is believed to create a perfect polarity, uniting both together in a balance of light and dark. It is considered to bring great good fortune.
Black Tourmaline, even though immensely valuable, is not expensive and almost everyone can afford to have a piece or a pendant.
