Healing Black Tourmaline Definition
Black tourmaline is by far one of the most essential stones you should have in your gem collection. Tourmaline is derived from the Sri Lankan region, an island off the coast of India.
The name comes from the term “thoramalli” or the Sinhalese word “turmali” for yellow zircon. All Sri Lankan colored stones carried this term. As the years passed, tourmaline retained the name as artisans used to discern the stone from other types, like padparadscha sapphire.
Ancient magicians would use black tourmaline to shield them from any evil entities and negative energies. In the zodiac, black tourmaline is associated with the constellation Libra or the divine scales. People born during the months of September 23rd through October 23rd are Libras. Tourmaline can assist Libra by strengthening and neutralizing any negative blockages.
