Black Tourmaline better known as “your personal protector“, is one of the most incredible stones associated with physical and psychic protection, grounding, health, happiness, luck, and positivity. Black Tourmaline is pyroelectric, meaning it generates electricity when heated. It is also piezoelectric, meaning it stores an electrical charge. Black Tourmaline attracts negative ions which in turn promote clear thinking and lightheartedness. Negative ions are regularly found in nature near waterfalls and fresh air. This crystal is a powerful stone for protection against any kind of negative energy and the evil eye. Wearers claim that Black Tourmaline offers strong spiritual grounding for amazing psychic growth.
Black Tourmaline is also considered as one of the most popular crystals to be used for metaphysical purposes. I personally wear it and keep it as a healer to protect myself from any negative entities and elementals and also to neutralize electromagnetic smog around me. (electromagnetic smog is generated around us through a host of electrical and electromagnetic appliances we consume in our daily lives, like T.V., Cellphone, electric bulbs, AC’s, refrigerators etc.)
Tourmaline encourages positive attitudes, good luck and happiness, regardless of the circumstances that you find yourself in. Tourmaline crystal aids to both the professional healers and the average person who wants a stone that will be a positive force for good in your life… as it creates a positive attitude and mindset.
This stone’s name is made up of two words, and of course, we all understand the Black which relates to its color, but some people have wondered about the word Tourmaline. Black Tourmaline is just one of a group of different colored stones that all have a similar structure… yet its meaning is incorrect when you go back to the origin of the word.
This word came from a regional term in Sri Lanka, based on the Sinhalese word “turmali”, that referred to yellow Zircon. Its use began due to a mistake, when a consignment of stone was sent from Sri Lanka with the label Turmalin. For some reason, they liked the name and began to use it and it stuck, although it has since changed a little to the current wordstructure and look of natural pieces of tourmaline are the same… regardless of the color. This relates to the presence of vertical striations, ridges or furrows on the stones, and this is one way to identify Black Tourmaline in the natural form.
The black variety of Tourmaline has been found in a large number of locations… including Pakistan, Australia, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Africa and the USA. It is also known as Schorl Tourmaline.
This is a powerful asset to your health, as it not only removes the negative energy but by changing it to the positive energy it has an excellent effect on your well-being!
