Black Beauty Tourmaline
Awe, the mysterious beauty of Black Tourmaline… A quiet yet strong protective energy that goes about its business without a lot of houpla! Its use goes back to ancient times when it was used for protection by shamans in Africa and North America.
Black Tourmaline, also known as Schorl, is one of the most popular stones to aid one in their spiritual work. It can be found in a number of different countries, including Brazil, Africa, Pakistan and parts of the United States. Black Tourmaline forms in double terminated points as well as larger crystals, up to two pounds.
It has a deep connection with the earth and is hence a powerful grounding stone as it supports the alignment of the chakras. Black Tourmaline is pyroelectric, as it can generate electricity when heated, and is also piezoelectric in that it can store an electrical charge, causing it to release negative ions which makes it very supportive for one’s health. So Black Tourmaline not only protects your aura field from foreign energy, but also cleanses and purifies your emotional body of toxic thoughts of worry, negative thinking, excessive stress and obsessive behaviour. Physically, it can support one with cleansing the body of heavy metals and environmental pollutants.
Just a little while back I had a client who I will call John, who wanted me to create a healing bracelet to support him with what he was needing in his life at that point in time. Right away the stone Black Tourmaline was calling to be in the bracelet. All I had in Black Tourmaline beads was a finished bracelet which I really didn’t want to take apart! I thought maybe I could use Black Obsidian? But no…I knew it had to be Black Tourmaline. So I reluctantly took the bracelet apart to add 7 beads to the bracelet I was creating for John. When I was finished, I was very happy. I knew I did the right thing by staying aligned with Spirit! The energy of the bracelet was smooth, solid and healing, and it was what John needed.
When I mailed it to John, he contacted me right away and said how much he noticed the energy especially from the Black Tourmaline! I was delighted! And oh how the Universe works in mysterious ways! Later that day another client, Shelley, contacted me that she wanted 3 custom bracelets; all of them to include Black Tourmaline beads. As it turned out I had exactly enough Black Tourmaline beads left over from the bracelet I took apart to create all three healing bracelets for Shelley! I couldn’t believe it! So the one bracelet I took apart and "let go of" supported not one, but four people in their healing processes!
Thank you Spirit!! It was certainly a lesson for me in trust; that we do live in an abundant universe.
