Black Tourmaline (Schorl) is our go-to crystal for protection! It protects against cell phones, electromagnetic smog, radiation, psychic attack, spells and ill-wishing, and negative energies of all kinds. Connecting with the root chakra, it grounds energy and increases physical vitality, dispersing tension and stress. Clearing negative thoughts, Black Tourmaline promotes a laid-back attitude and objective neutrality with clear, rational thought processes. It encourages a positive attitude no matter what the circumstances, and stimulates altruism and practical creativity.
