Spiritual uses of Black Tourmaline

Black Tourmaline is a very versatile gemstone. For one the black tourmaline is of all spectrums of the rainbow, that is why it is black. However it is void of most light which is the definition of dark. It has both negative and positive properties.

The color and the light spectrum of black tourmaline make it a perfect conduit for balancing. This would be the balance of positive and negative. Because tourmaline is of all the colors it works on the balancing and grounding of all the chakras.



“I am protected on all levels.”

Black Tourmaline is a powerful stone for protection and spiritual grounding stone.  It is a purifying stone that transforms and removes negativity; excellent for deflecting radiation energy as well.  It protects against moaners, whiners, complaining neighbors or emotional vampires who burden you with their problems but do nothing to improve their situations.

It is often used as an aura cleanser, and can help one attain higher levels of awareness.  Black Tourmaline is a stone of purification, cleansing the emotional body of negative thoughts, anxieties, anger or feelings of unworthiness. It helps in overcoming substance abuse, and releases any suicidal thoughts or self-harming tendencies. It may be beneficial in treating obsessive or compulsive behaviors, and in relinquishing chronic worry.

It encourages happiness, regardless of the circumstances that you find yourself in.  It enhances your physical vitality, emotional stability and intellectual acuity.

Black Tourmaline is a wonderful aid to both the professional healer and the average person who wants a stone that will be a positive force, as it creates a positive attitude and mindset.

In the workplace, hold Black Tourmaline for a few minutes when you need to wake up your mind or when you need full concentration.


How to care for Black Tourmaline

One of the most interesting things about black tourmaline is that it needs very little care. Many crystal healers believe that when a black tourmaline is finished with it’s job, it will either break into pieces or you may loose the entire mineral.

cleansing and charging may help with this effect. When a crystal looses their properties, and they can after a while, they need to be cleansed and charged.

One way to do this is by letting it sit under a new moon to cleanse and put it under a fool moon so that it may charge. Some people leave their crystals in the sun, this is not a bad idea for black tourmaline and can help in the recharging process.
