Article - Black Tourmaline
By Lee Ann Cornell & Robin Fivecoat
Black Tourmaline emits far infrared radiation in the 4-14 micron wavelength. Electromagnetic radiation in the far infrared range is able to boost the immune system and promote detoxification. Like a grounding wire in an electrical appliance, black tourmaline is known to enhance the human body’s own electrical field. It helps to stay grounded in the midst of hurtful EMF radiation. It’s an extraordinary stone to wear, to put close to your Wi-Fi switch, to set on your PC, or even framework your home.
Black tourmaline diminishes fears by promoting understanding. It is the Yin and Yang of the mineral kingdom. It brings integration of the left hemisphere of the brain which is logic and reasoning with the right hemisphere which rules emotion and creativity. This may also help with dyslexia and disorientation.
This stone reminds you that you are part of something bigger than yourself. It reminds you that you are part of the Divine. It repels and protects against negativity. It’s an excellent stone for psychic self-defense. During a psychic attack, the black tourmaline with white mica flecks will not only reflect negativity back to the sender, but will allow the person to see where it originated.
Black tourmaline is very grounding and helps one connect to the Earth.
