Dictionary Terms Explained
- Protection, grounding
The overall energy of tourmaline evokes a sense of protection and grounding. It's commonly used in work to purify and protect a person's energy and for cleansing the aura. It wards off feelings of negativity, both in the physical and spiritual worlds, and helps promote a more positive and uplifting stance. Tourmaline can help remove energetic blockages in the aura and is great for balancing the chakras.
In addition to the above certain types of tourmaline bring other attributes:
* Black tourmaline is one of the great crystals associated with clearing negativity of all kinds including electromagnetic energy. It grounds you and helps release stress.
* Tourmaline quartz contains both tourmaline and quartz, often visibly separate, which brings in also some of the qualities of quartz such as aligning with your higher purpose and inner clarity.
* Watermelon tourmaline combines the energies of pink and green tourmaline and is connected to the heart chakra. It works on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels of the heart centre, harmonizing all aspects of one's being, bringing forth feelings of calmness and inner peace.
- Protection, mystery, transformation
As a colour, black reflects no light in the visible spectrum, which is why it’s often had a strong association with the unknown, with magic and mystery.
Although black can be viewed as a dark, negative and forbidding colour, it also has very positive meanings too. Due to its deep, black and empty look, black can be viewed as restful and something which can transform ideas or possibilities. For example, used in meditations, you can drift into the black emptiness and emerge once more full of hope and possibility.
If you enjoy working with gemstones and crystals, then the black stones, such as jet, onyx, obsidian and black tourmaline, are excellent as grounding stones. They also have protective energies and can be used to help clear negativity and bad energy.
In the Western world, black is the colour of funerals, as people wear black and use black hearses to transport coffins. The commonly associated garb of witches is a black cloak, accompanied by a black cauldron, out of which they conjured up magic and mystery. For Native Americans, black was viewed in favourable terms, as it was the colour of the earth, out of which life and crops grow.
When worn as a colour, black can generate a protective feel, helping you blend into the crowd, yet when coupled with white for formal attire, it can also help create an air of elegance and sophistication.

5 out of 5 By Jenny, Newport.This is an absolutely lovely necklace, and at a superb price too. I've been a fan of black tourmaline for years and used to buy the elasticated bracelets both for friends and myself. But they tend to break easily and also look a bit obvious/a bit too hippy. By comparison, this necklace is very robust, and I love it's length and weight - it looks more like fashion jewellery/an accessory piece. It'd make a great gift for anyone who's down/needs grounding or feels under attack.
3 out of 5 By AnnaThe stones are beautiful, but the necklace is not elasticated (sort of assumed it would be), so it's very long and VERY heavy!It could do with being shorter, perhaps with a clasp, or on elastic. It's okay if you are a hippy, but if you prefer a more subtle look, I can't see any way that this can be worn! I'm going to snip it and rethread the beads.
