Black Tourmaline, known as Schorl, is a very powerful gemstone that every-person can benefit from wearing, and here is why:
Black Tourmaline keeps an electric charge, as it is pyroelectric (meaning it can generate electricity when heated), as well as piezoelectric (meaning it can store an electrical charge), causing it to release negative ions and far infrared radiation – these are very beneficial for health. This incredible stone is associated with protection, grounding, health, happiness, luck, and positivity.
Black tourmaline has been used since ancient times by Shamans and healers for protection. Black Tourmaline is considered by many to be the most powerful protective stone and it is one of the only stones that protects and heals on all levels – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. Since I discovered Black Tourmaline not a day goes by that I don’t wear it. And, if I do forget to wear it, I can FEEL the difference, and I am reminded of why I always have it near or on me.
Following are just some of its incredible benefits:
➢ Protects from negative energies – transmutes negative energies of all kinds (including thoughts) into positive energies.
➢ Receives the negative energy or psychic attack, and transmutes it BACK to the sender. For more information on negative energies see my blog post (Link).
➢ Shields from harmful electromagnetic radiation—from TVs, computers and mobile phones—by emitting a small electric current.
➢ Strengthens immunity
➢ Relieves stress and anxiety
➢ Promotes detoxification
➢ Increases alertness
➢ Supports organs
➢ Eliminates toxic heavy metals
➢ Helps circulation
➢ Improves metabolism
➢ Improves self-confidence
➢ Grounds energies – associated with root chakra
➢ Balances and clears chakras and aura.
Ancient ceremonies in India included the use of tourmaline as a tool to bring insight and help in the discovery of that which is good. It also served as a tool to make known who or what was the cause of troubles or evil deeds in one’s life. The gem was also highly valued by alchemists who, perhaps because of it’s pyroelectric effect, believed it to be related to the philosopher’s stone. This was said to be the substance that would grant enlightenment, give power over spiritual affairs, reconcile opposites and change base metals to gold. In modern times, the stone is used by tribes in Africa, Native Americans, and aboriginal groups in Australia as a talisman that protects against all dangers. – Crystal Cure
