Black Tourmaline, or Schorl, is a form of tourmaline that ranges from black to very dark green. Specimens considered "lower quality" are often more brittle and contain neat inclusions such as quartz, hematite, mica, and iron. High-quality specimens are shinier but do not have inclusions of other minerals. Black tourmaline does not need cleansing or charging.
Physical Healing Properties: Black tourmaline has been used to calm panic attacks, dispel worry, fear, judgment, anger, and many other negative emotions. It heightens the senses, wards off distractions and negativity, and also acts as an aphrodisiac!
Magic + Metaphysics: For thousands of years, many cultures have used black tourmaline to dispel negativity and to protect against evil. It is also used for purification and grounding.
