Black Tourmaline Quick Notes
Black tourmaline, as part of the Tourmaline family, is commonly known as Schorl. It’s a very popular stone that’s used for protection and cleansing, often used in rituals to help get rid of any negative energy that may be present. This is the most ample type of tourmaline in nature.
What makes black tourmaline special is its naturally occurring sheen, which gives it a natural polished appearance. If you look closely at most pieces, you can see silver inclusions, which is that of mica. These inclusions, combined with the natural sheen, creates the perfect combination of dark and light.
Aside from its metaphysical features, black tourmaline is largely used in jewelry and as display pieces.
Black tourmaline is closely associated with the root chakra and is mined in Africa, Brazile and Pakistan.
