Black Tourmaline, also known as Schorl, is a common variety of tourmaline found in various locations around the world. Significant deposits exist in countries such as Brazil, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and the United States. It often occurs in granite and other igneous rocks.
Black Tourmaline has a distinctive deep black colour and a vitreous to dull luster. It typically forms as long, prismatic crystals with striations along their length. The crystal structure of tourmaline allows for variations in colour, and in the case of Black Tourmaline, its dark hue is due to a high concentration of iron. The stone is often opaque, but some specimens may exhibit translucency.
Black Tourmaline is renowned for its strong protective properties in the metaphysical realm. It is believed to absorb and transmute negative energies, providing a shield against psychic attacks and electromagnetic smog. Many consider it a grounding stone, fostering a connection with the Earth and promoting a sense of security. Some also use Black Tourmaline for its alleged ability to enhance purification and cleansing rituals. In addition to its metaphysical uses, Black Tourmaline is sometimes fashioned into jewelry, carved into decorative items, or kept in its raw, natural form for its aesthetic appeal and energetic properties.
