A lot of folks have been asking us about Black Tourmaline since we started carrying it in the shop.
This beauty is a crystalline boron silicate mineral compounded with elements such as aluminium, iron, magnesium, sodium, lithium, or potassium. It’s raw, sharp and almost volcanic look makes it a sure-fire conversation starter. It’s one of my favorite minerals as it doubles as both a protection from negative energy and an energy purifier.
Black Tourmaline, the heavyweight champion of protection stones, is also one of the most popular crystals to be used for metaphysical purposes. In the store, in my purse or at my home, you will find it tucked into corners and perched on ledges all over the place. It brings me a sense of calm to know that it is there even if others are not aware of it. There have been times where my anxiety and nervous energy was so overwhelming that I slept with Black Tourmaline under my pillow to allow it to help me to let go of negativity and self doubt. I have found it’s grounding effects to be especially calming.
Yes, I know that there are many other minerals that others may consider more visually appealing. In my book, this stone has everything I could possibly ask for. I invite you to try it out for yourself and tell me what you think!
