Black Tourmaline, also called Schorl can be used to both repel and protect against negativity. Black Tourmaline is a wonderful teacher and a natural type of energy deflector. It returns the energy back to the sender in order that they may learn and understand why they felt the need to send the negative energy in the first place.
Black Tourmaline works very well with the Root chakra, increasing physical vitality. It also helps to ground, balance and focus when all around appears to be in disarray or chaos. When things appear bleak or challenges abound, hold Black Tourmaline as it will help to lift your spirit, showing you a resolution is near. It is the light at the end of a tunnel.
Black Tourmaline can help to cleanse and align all chakras, making it a perfect piece to use in any type of healing modality. It resonates with the astrological energy of Capricorn and the numbers 3 and 4.
