Crystal of the Month: Black Tourmaline

Hey lovelies!

Let’s talk about Tourmaline!

One of the most used (and loved) crystals in my collection, has to be black tourmaline! It’s such a beautiful stone for grounding and its powerful, flowing energies provide outstanding protection against unwanted negative energies.

Its ability to deflect negative energy, combined with its cleansing and purifying properties make black tourmaline (aka Schorl) especially effective at protecting the aura against the effects of psychic vampires (who may otherwise leave you feeling drained).

Black tourmaline may be carried (or worn as jewellery) to protect against physical attack and harm to the physical body. It’s also a fantastic stone for protecting against electromagnetic radiation.

Black tourmaline works wonderfully to remove negative thought patterns and therefore may be beneficial to anyone suffering from stress, anxiety or depression. Black tourmaline also helps to remove any energy blocks, which may be holding you back.

Physically, black tourmaline can help strengthen the immune system, improve digestion and aid detoxification.

Black Tourmaline Properties

As a crystal healer, black tourmaline forms an essential part of my kit; not just for helping my clients, but for grounding and cleansing my own energies, after I’ve finished each healing session. It’s also my favourite go-to crystal, for grounding after meditation.

Random Black Tourmaline Fact: Black Tourmaline is both piezoelectric and pyroelectric, which means that it develops an electric charge when pressure or heat is applied. Because of this, it’s been used in the past to draw ashes out of pipes, and is now used in many appliances, as a component in thermostat switches.
