  I asked Google which crystals provide protection against Covid 19 and Black Tourmaline was at the top of the list. I had mine wire wrapped and I wear it with Clear Quartz which amplifies the benefits. I can say that my sinuses are clear now and have been since I started using Amethyst.  (Submitted by: Larry Jamison on February 24, 2021)
  I'm in love with black tourmaline! Being an Empath I'm constantly filled with peoples emotions near and far, mix that with my own emotions it's an overload. When I've hit my breaking point, my go to is Black tourmaline. As soon as (and I mean like now) I pick tourmaline up, those emotions drain right out of me and replaced with a calming sence of peace and tranquility, every time. It really is amazing.  (Submitted by: MoonBeam on February 23, 2021)
  I use my black tourmaline with silver to block out my empathic curse. I am an INFJ, so with the help of the "sheild" of Luna or the moon aka silver, I found that a peice of black tourmaline wrapped with silver helps protect me from taking in the negative emotions and feelings of other people and animals.  (Submitted by: Robert Holloway on July 20, 2020)
