This lovely tourmaline on quartz specimens is one of my favorites! This interesting piece displays multiple jet black tourmaline crystallizations in a bed of feldspar matrix. You can see tourmaline beryls growing beautifully in all directions. This color combination of the black tourmaline with the white matrix energetically carries a yin and yang element promoting balance and harmony.
Black tourmaline is one of the most powerful protectors. It is used worldwide as a protective talisman by healers and shamans. It provides the body with grounding while releasing any tension or emotion that is creating disharmony. Tourmaline also always carries an electric current which is what gives it it's supernatural ability to heal since it is always carrying energy through it. It is a protector stone that provides the physical and metaphysical body with a energetic barrier from ill will or destructive forces. You can use this stone to break through difficult barriers of negative emotion or when faced with a difficult circumstance to begin a process of healing.
