Black Tourmaline Rough | Medium
PURIFICATION | GROUNDING | PROTECTION
What was it our Year 7 Sex-Ed Teacher always told us? Oh, that’s right, “Always use protection”. A solid, universal piece of advice that you can actually turn to in pretty much any given situation (except perhaps the US gun debate, but that’s another story…)
Black Tourmaline has been used for centuries to protect from evil spirits. It deflects and transforms not only negative energy, but harmful thoughts and shitty people too! It is often used as an aura cleanser and can help you attain higher levels of awareness.
Black Tourmaline works like a super absorbent sponge, soaking up all the negative energy that surrounds it. Wear Black Tourmaline jewellery or carry it with you so you don't pick up on other people’s toxic energy. It's one thing to be compassionate and caring but it's the danger zone for your soul when you take on someone else's drama.
This mysterious and alluring stone is one of the most powerful and effective crystals for anxiety. If you find yourself being swept away by the storm clouds of fear, Keep Calm and Carry Black Tourmaline. The anti depressant of healing crystals, this protective stone is another essential component to your crystal first aid kit.
Black Tourmaline is also one of the most powerful minerals for absorbing electromagnetic radiation, which makes it excellent for placing near computers, iPhones, et al.
With an intense black colour that makes a killer statement piece in any home, Black Tourmaline is also a decorator's dream. Black Tourmaline is the new black.

What is intuitively chosen?
When you see the below bold sentence on a listing of ours, it means we have multiple of that stone and we will pick one that we feel is right for you. We call them intuitively chosen pieces because we use our intuition to choose a piece we feel is calling us for you - a piece that is absolutely meant to be yours. We are huge believers in the crystal chooses the owner, not the other way around.
We do our best to make sure that the listing photos and information accurately depicts what we have available so you have an idea of what is coming your way, but the rest is up to the universe.
If you don't see the below on our listing, it's because it is a one off piece and we guarantee that what is pictured is the exact piece you will receive.
"Price is per one piece, intuitively picked for you. The pictures represent the quality and sizing you can expect to receive however please note that stone is unique and one of a kind so there will be slight variations."
Using crystals for their spiritual and healing properties can be fun and fascinating and is a killer way to connect with the earth’s energy. But, when you really start digging into the magickal world of sparkly stones, it can start getting really overwhelming.
Not only do crystals come in every colour of the rainbow and serve different intended purposes, they are also found in many different shape formations. Newbies to the crystal world may think the way a stone is cut or shaped is purely aesthetic, but there’s a little more to a crystal’s shape than meets the eye. Just as the colours of the stones convey unique meanings, crystal shapes also matter. And while experts say that the structure of a crystal doesn’t change the type of energy it emits, the shape DOES affect the way you receive said energy.
