It has a rich nourishing energy.
A crystal with a point at each end is called double terminated (DT). It is believed that they have the ability to receive or transmit energy from both ends. They are used for alignment, patience, perseverance, protection, dreaming, and astral projection. Double terminated crystals strengthen energy flow, and are especially useful when you need to share or exchange energy between you and another person. Double terminated crystals are very important to people doing healing work for themselves or others.
Tourmaline has long been one of our secret passions. It comes in a wide array of colors to work with every chakra, and is often easier to work with than quartz.

It is ideal for those looking towards renewal and purification and to access answers buried deep inside ourselves. It is one of the best all round cleansing, balancing and healing stones.
