It is unbelievable, but I just found out that I didn’t include a description of black tourmaline in the index of gems. I had to check a couple of times, but then I realized there was no black tourmaline in the list. So I added a description and a photo right away, but still I feel I have to say more about it, because it is one of my absolute favorites.
Black tourmaline is a stone that never needs cleansing, because it transforms negative energy into positive. The negative energy can either be environmental (like cellular phones, radiation or electromagnetic pollution) or negative energy of other persons. I find it especially useful when I have to interact with people who wish me ill or cast negative spells. All this negative energy is redirected directly back to the sender. For these occasions I wear it as a pendant or I just have it in my bag or pocket. Black tourmaline works magic for me, and I think you should try it in situation where you are not sure about other people’s intentions. Black tourmaline works against all bad vibes, also your own.
I read in a book (The Book of Stones: Who They Are & What They Teach), black tourmaline works like an etheric vacuum cleaner, clearing oneself and the surroundings of negativity and disharmony.
