Black Tourmaline Properties and Info


Black tourmaline crystal, also known as schorl, has long been recognized for the benefits it provides as a protection stone... powerful indeed. In fact, since ancient times it has been used as a form of protection against demonic influences. It is commonly used as a grounding stone, and to eliminate negativity from the aura and psyche.

Disclaimer: You should consult your health and/or mental health professional before using any alternative healing methods. This article does not suggest otherwise.


Healing the Body with Black Tourmaline


Crystal healers value black tourmaline for its benefits in relieving joint pain. If you suffer from chronic lower back pain, or arthritis in the joints of the fingers, knees, or ankles; this stone may well be of help. It is also useful in providing pain relief from neuropathy and overused muscles. In the healing of illnesses, black tourmaline is often used to strengthen the immune system. This crystal type is also known to be a useful tool to those who suffer from problems with their adrenal glands. In addition, it is used to provide relief from conditions such as IBS and heavy metal toxicity.


In Healing the Mind


As already touched upon, black tourmaline is a powerful grounding stone. It is said to be through this property that it provides mental clarity by creating balance between the left and right hemispheres of the brain. For people who suffer from dyslexia, it is believed that black tourmaline can improve their translation of written information. The grounding effects of this stone will help bring you more in tune with your auric energy as well.

For those suffering from chronic anxiety or depression, black tourmaline's grounding properties can be targeted towards enabling healing in that area. Its grounding effects act to clear away negative emotions and thoughts, and will be of particular value to those experiencing feelings of unworthiness. Black tourmaline is said to have at times been used to assist in preventing self-harm and suicide, and to treat patients suffering from addiction.


For Meditation and Divination


Black tourmaline is often used as a meditation crystal as it is particularly grounding to the negative energies from Earth, thus providing for cleaner, safer energies for us to enter the spiritual plane with. For those planning on doing some astral projection work, this stone's energies will provide you protection from negativity while navigating the astral realm; as well, it will provide a degree of clarity that will enable you to easily find your way back to your physical self upon completion of your journey.

Black tourmaline is also useful as a divination stone. It was one of the first pendulum stones used in ancient times, and will come in handy if you are attempting to divine the location of a lost object or find the solution to a particularly confusing issue.
