Black Tourmaline also known as schorl or aphrizite is connected with the element of earth and root chakra.

Black Tourmaline is an ideal stone for anyone that is working with crystals themselves, someone living in a challenging environment or one that comes ungrounded easily or often. I love to have something tourmaline either worn as jewelry or a piece in my pocket while I am working with my crystals and writing about them because all of the different but subtle energies of the crystals can make me become off balance. Black Tourmaline avoids that from happening to me. I also give this to my children when they go o school to help them stay focused and grounded while in school. A nice little tumbled piece is perfect to stick in their pocket or in their bag.

Black Tourmaline is known to purify negative energy and turn it into positive energy we can use. It is not just negative energy that is transmuted into positive energy but also scattered energy as in the case when one is living in a scattered environment, black tourmaline helps to ground and transmute that energy as well.

Metaphysically black tourmaline is helpful for healers to not take on their clients energies, placing a protective shield around the user.

Black tourmaline is one of the best grounding stones because it helps one to remain in the grounding circuit of the earths electromagnetic field. What that means is as the earth travels through different changes, us humans travel in our own changes and those changes are not always in sync with one another. Black tourmaline will assist one to be grounded in the energy shifts of our planetary changes.


Black Tourmaline is astrologically connected with the zodiac sun sign of Capricorn.
