Black Tourmaline is also known as schorl, after it was found in a town in Germany. However, Brazil has been the leading source of tourmaline for the last 500 years. Tourmaline comes in many colors, with black being one of the most common. In the United States, California owns a majority of tourmaline mines. It is an incredibly beautiful stone, which leads it to be common in jewelry stores and collectors’ troves. Tourmaline has incredibly versatile energy properties, with each color being different from the next. Black Tourmaline has been historically used as a link to connect the earth and the user. It’s revered as a powerful talisman gem. Ancient magicians used black tourmaline to protect against demons and negative soul energies. Its pure coloring makes it almost as powerful an aesthetic piece, as it is a spiritual grounder. Black Tourmaline is perfect to place around work and home spaces.
