Black Tourmaline is revered as a premier talisman of protection. Think of it as a psychic shield deflecting and dispelling negative energies, entities, or destructive forces. Or you might think of it as a lightening rod, taking any negative energy and grounding it into Mama earth where she can transform it back into pure potential. It promotes a sense of power and self-confidence, allowing for a clearer, more objective view of the world. Black tourmaline is empowering to those who must live or work in challenging environments or when facing difficult circumstances.
A Luck Talisman and more
Mystical Tradition says to rub black tourmaline for luck and happiness. This reputation as a powerful stone and a very lucky stone, might come from the piezoelectric qualities. When the tourmaline is rubbed it becomes charged with magnetic electricity and the luck intensifies.

ground energy (this is a root chakra stone)
reduce tension and stress
clear negative thoughts
encourage a positive attitude no matter the circumstances
stimulate altruism and practical creativity
strengthen the energy body and immune system
