Raw Black Tourmaline
Black Tourmaline is a very popular stone, and especially in its raw form it is the ultimate stone you can have for protection. Use your Black Tourmaline as a shield of protection against negative energies and influences. This stone has a long history and has been used for protection and it has been said that it is also capable or “pointing out”, or calling to attention a problem or a person who is causing trouble. In ancient times, Black Tourmaline was called “Schorl”, and was used in their ritual work by both Shamans and Native Americans to protection themselves against demons of the earth and negative spells and curses.
Black Tourmaline is a powerful grounding stone and works with all Chakras, connecting our human spirit with the Earth. In Chakra use, it aligns our energy centers and channels healing light throughout our body. Black Tourmaline can also be used as protection against electromagnetic radiation, noise sensitivity and other disturbances that make their way to use through call phones, computers, microwaves, etc.
Black Tourmaline is a semi soft stone, and so in its raw state it will chip. It is best to keep your Black Tourmaline in a place where it would get tossed around or rubbed against anything that might make it chip. Your tourmaline can be taken with you or carried in your pocket, but just keep it in a small bag or your medicine bag by itself when you take it with you to prevent any damage to the stone. Personally, my Black Tourmaline is a favorite piece and I take it with me everywhere I go. Tourmaline is my favorite protection stone and its energies are so strong that I feel very protected when it is with me.
