The black tourmaline has beautiful luster and its grounding energy has an energetic boost from the vein of quartz.
Black tourmaline is one of our favorite grounding crystals. Not only does it ground the emotions, fostering calmness, it helps to bring healing energy into the physical, grounding it. It does not hold you back from going as far as you can go, but it does help bring you back when you are ready. And more to the point, it grounds the Healing energy and information gained while in the layout/meditative state enabling you to integrate what you have received and learned into your physical body and consciousness.
Black Tourmaline when held in the hand will relieve the symptoms of allergies often with noticeable results within 10 minutes. If you do not feel a difference within that time, swap the Tourmaline between hands. It is also good for countering the symptoms of shock.
Black Tourmaline is very useful for people who are having trouble sleeping, either place it near groin region or in your hand, but under your pillow will work too. You will have a better quality sleep and will awaken feeling energized and ready to take on the day ahead with vigor.
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. Tourmaline is an extremely popular stone for the healing. It is used to assist in clearing negative emotional patterns and releasing the pain of events long gone. 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.
