Black Tourmaline is believed to be grounding, purifying, and protecting. It is thought to eliminate fear, anger, frustration, shame, worry and so many other negative emotions.
Tourmaline is a crystalline boron silicate mineral compounded with elements such as aluminum, iron, magnesium, sodium, lithium, or potassium. Tourmaline is classified as a semi-precious stone and the gemstone comes in a wide variety of colors. Tourmaline was sometimes called the "Ceylonese [Sri Lankan] Magnet" because it could attract and then repel hot ashes due to its pyroelectric properties. Tourmaline is rated between 7 and 7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. Tourmaline is associated with optimism and spirit, as well as imagination and dreams.
