Black Tourmaline is a powerful protection stone, deflecting negative energies and electromagnetic pollution from inflicting the aura and physical body. It cleanses, purifies, and detoxifies the system and grounds the chakras – creating a clear path for spiritual, physical, and emotional healing. It changes negative thought patterns into positive ones, and attracts inspiration, compassion, tolerance, and prosperity.
Black tourmaline is a stone of pure protection of mind, body, and soul. It fights to keep you grounded and safe so that you can clear and nurture yourself as needed. There are all different kinds of tourmaline but I work mostly with black, green, and sometimes pink so those are the the ones I will expand on here. All tourmalines possess the same highly protective energy but their different colors will inform the specific chakras they work with. While black tourmaline is strongly linked to the lower chakras, green and pink both open and amplify the heart chakra.
Tourmaline forms all over the world on nearly every continent but ranges vastly in quality and color. High quality pieces are considered rare but these are often the the gem quality ones and you can still get your hands on a gorgeous raw piece that won’t break the bank. This mineral forms in a trigonic pattern with a hexagonal crystal structure running in long parallel striations. Higher quality pieces will show off this stop sign shape and often have a smooth bar shape with tightly formed striations. More affordable pieces will have a loose and more visible crystal structure, these pieces are some of my favorites.
Tourmaline acts as a filter that transmutes negative energy flowing at a low vibration and revitalizes it as something positive for you to harness and benefit from. Tourmaline works hard to ensure you and your aura are protected from negative influence, especially those projected on you by others. Everyone can identify someone they’ve met who leaves them with a heavy or bad feeling — those are energy hooks and low vibration baggage that you get stuck with. Utilize tourmaline to clear your aura and chakras and to maintain that energetic clarity going forward.
Black tourmaline is specifically linked to the base chakra. This is where protection, safety, and general security are addressed. If you are bogged down by negative influence, your base chakra will be out of balance which makes it hard for the rest of your system to align and find harmony. It calms and eliminates harmful feelings of unworthiness, doubt, anxiety, fear, stress, anger, as well as obsessive and addictive behaviors. Clearing these heavy influences makes room for you to address and fulfill your needs and desires, allowing you to potentially benefit and expand from the negative energy you once faced.
Black tourmaline is certainly a powerhouse and works around the clock to keep you safe from negative influence. It grounds you and provides you with the positive energy you need to accomplish what you desire. What more could we ask of this mineral!?
when you might want some black tourmaline handy:
if you are sensitive to the energy of others, pop a piece in your purse or pocket to have on you at all times to keep energetic vampires and energy hooks at bay
when you feel a lot of heaviness that you can’t identify, it could be energy put on you by others and you are carrying it around unknowingly…. clear it out by sleeping with a piece under your pillow for a night or two
if you tend to have wild dreams or nightmares, keep a piece next to or under your bed to keep you protected in that space — i keep one on the floor under the bed always
keep a piece in your car to protect you while you drive
keep a piece near your computer and areas with all your technology (like a desk) to protect you from electromagnetic energy and wifi stress
This piece is about 3.5 inches long.
