Tourmalated Quartz, also called Tourmalinated Quartz, shares the properties of its components – the grounding and deflection of negative energy found in Tourmaline, as well as the energy amplification and consciousness raising ability of Quartz. Tourmalated Quartz can help bring balance to the Yin and Yang energies, and is often used as a good luck charm.
Black Tourmaline, or Schorl, which is most commonly the type of Tourmaline found in Tourmalated Quartz, is a well known stone in metaphysical circles. Used for grounding and clearing, Black Tourmaline is also exceptional at blocking and transmuting negativity, making it a wonderful stone for releasing fear and worry, and for protection of one's energy field. Black Tourmaline is also used for clearing away electromagnetic pollution from sources such as computers and cell phones.
Clear Quartz is known as the master healer of the mineral kingdom and is often used for enhancing psychic abilities. It has the energetic property of amplification, focus, and programmability. Crystal lovers know Clear Quartz to be a great tool for manifestation and spiritual growth. Meditating with Clear Quartz can help one to attune to the soul purpose. Clear Quartz can open and activate the chakras. Clear Quartz is also a great tool for manifestation grids and body layouts, but must be cleansed regularly.
The combination of Clear Quartz and Black Tourmaline creates a powerful ally in one's spiritual growth. While the Quartz can be an aid to those on the spiritual path, the Black Tourmaline can help keep one well-grounded, thus avoiding that out-of-touch sensation that can often result from being too focused on the higher pursuits. Black Tourmaline in Quartz can also help one to avoid picking up negative vibrations from the environment or other people, making it a great crystal for one's pocket or purse. Tourmalated Quartz is loved by crystal healers for its energetic cleansing effect on the aura, and is great for energy healing sessions and grid work.

| Fascinating & never ceases to amaze how our guides, God, & the Universe give us what we need! I LOVE this website, stumbled upon it, and it is truly an EXCEPTIONAL resource.....|
I don't have a lot of retail or shops offering Crystals in my area, however, a few are starting to pop up. I wanted a crystal pendant that would protect me from absorbing negative energies/vibrations, physically & cognitively or psychically; and also clear & ground while enhancing my spiritual journey to enlightenment as a Spiritual Medium Healer!
I felt compelled several weeks ago, to visit a local shop after dropping kids at school. Scoped it up and down, tried on several pieces of jewelry, then found two pendants, didn't stand out as colorful, pretty, unique, etc. They both are smaller in size, ~sz. of nickel? There were many other things in the store, far more eccentric, unique, eclectic but I kept being drawn to these two pendants. I'd look at them, then set them back go look at other items, come back...and so on. I had NO IDEA what I needed, in terms of what crystals, to offer these traits, therefore I had ABSOLUTELY no idea what these crystal pendants would help with.
And, as mentioned, they're not the most attractive of Crystals available, but the faith and trust that if you put intention in it, give it to God, and trust your guides, THEY WILL answer you led me to say, "I guess I'll pick these" (I had a coupon for one item)....I was trying to decide between the two (still haven't looked up the second Crystal Pendant yet) back and forth at the counter again.....I was late getting my daughter....I couldn't decide---Ii WASN'T MEANT to decide, so I got both.
Then today, been feeling REALLY down, lost, out of sync/touch, hypersensitive/emotional, so I decide, almost a whole month later to open this "homely" crystal pendant and wear it. Took kiddos to school, came home, and was led to this site...almost immediately find this information which is SHOCKING to say the least, hence me need to give every last detail and testament. Every single trait, purpose I wanted I have in this Crystal, unbelievable.
AND THEN, I read further about the metaphysical traits.....why I'm surprised by now I have NO CLUE, but it's for my astrological signs...I'm a cusp of a libra & scorpio, & in numerology, the number 4 is my life path number.....CRAZY, validating, lovely.
I desperately needed this boost today! Thank you for such a thorough site, AMAZING resource, and abundance of information and tools!
In much gratitude and light....
