Black Tourmaline is the number one stone when it comes to protection. Protection from negative energies, entities, or destructive forces. It was used by ancient magicians to provide protection during ritual work from earth demons.
It is also a powerful stone in absorbing electromagnetic radiation, which is all around us nowadays. Wearing it or having it around when working on computers and other electronic devices can help ground and dispel the electromagnetic radiation.
Black Tourmaline is a stone of purification, cleansing the emotional body of negative thoughts, anxieties, anger or feelings of unworthiness.
Black tourmaline is a great grounding stone. Being a grounding stone black tourmaline is associated with the root chakra helping to balance it. A balanced root chakra will help in dispelling lethargy, low levels of activity, low enthusiasm, and a need for constant stimulation.
Wearing or carrying around the stone can also help to put an energetic boundary between you and others so that you don’t pick up unwanted energies.
When placed in the corners of the room, it seals in the room with a protective shield. Black tourmaline’s protective energy is also ideal for entryways inside the house. Set a piece of black tourmaline by the front door, inside your home. This will seal off your home, so that any negative vibes that you collected at work or outside don’t follow you into your house or place your stone outside near the front door or even hide it a potted plant.
Wearing black tourmaline as a jewellery piece works well to help you get the maximum benefit from this crystal. For those who feel they are stuck in a negative environment, a natural crystal with black tourmaline to sit on your table will work equally as well.
This bracelet is made from black tourmaline beads.
