Black Tourmaline is a complex of aluminium borosilicate and forms a black striated crystal also known as Schorl. Another darker form of Tourmaline is Brown Tourmaline also know as Dravite.
The frequency of Black Tourmaline is connected to the Earth Star and base chakras and thus acts as a grounding stone enabling energies to be grounded to the Magnetic Core of the Earth. It helps to stabilise one’s energy fields so that one ‘feels’ a connection to the physicality of the third dimension and helps one to remain in this ‘grounded’ state.
Black Tourmaline aids in the clearing and purification of one’s energy fields and in the removal of toxins from one’s physical body. It helps to regulate any electrical charges and energy imbalances held within one’s energy fields which can thus help with issues of stress, worry, anxiety or obsessive behaviour.
This black form of Tourmaline is very effective in clearing negativity from one’s energy fields or environment making it a good stone for psychic and environmental protection.
