Tourmaline is the name given to a family of minerals forming hard, slender vertically striated prismatic crystals, often hexagonal or rhombohedral in shape, with a high specific gravity, classified as complex aluminum borosilicate.
Like quartz, tourmaline crystals will generate an electrical charge when pressure is applied in the direction of the vertical axis. This is called piezoelectricity. In addition, some tourmaline will generate an electrical charge when heated.
Tourmaline is the birthstone for the month of October and the Zodiacal sign of Libra. In ancient Hindu tradition, the tourmaline is a stone of motivation, which impels the wearer toward the good, and a "teller" stone that gives insight in times of duress and can identify sources of distress in the wearer's environment.
Shamanic practitioners in African, Native American and Aboriginal tribes used tourmaline to provide protection from physical danger and to amplify healing powers.
All forms of tourmaline are thought to balance the left and right hand sides of the brain, harmonizing rational thought with intuitive insights. Tourmaline helps release victim consciousness and maintain a sense of humor, faith and confidence in the reality of one's own inner vision.
Crystal healers say that tourmaline can be useful in the treatment of ailments of the nervous system and to purify blood/lymph toxins. This gemstone is said to neutralize fears, resentment, neurosis, and obsessions. Healers use tourmaline to treat intestinal or spinal energy blocks, release toxins, combat constipation, and provide relief in cases of neuralgia, migraine headache, and burns. Tourmaline is thought to support healthy lungs, and to relieve lower back pain, asthma and arthritis symptoms, swelling and immobility.
Common tourmaline is black, and the lighter colors, such as blue, are much more rare. The colors in the stones are created by the presence of various metallic ions such as iron, titanium, chromium, and others. The various colors of tourmaline are associated with the seven primary chakras within the human aura.
Black tourmaline is specifically used metaphysically to provide grounding and spiritual protection during any kind of ritual, ceremonial, prayerful or meditative work. According to Melody in her wonderful encyclopedic work, "Love is in the Earth", black tourmaline deflects and protects against "spells" cast by the negative side of another, not only dispelling the "spell" but bringing in vitality, increasing your well being.
Black tourmaline also helps to stimulate the lower back points, grounds us by connecting our root chakra with the earth, and can stimulate and balance the adrenals as well as relieve arthritis, "heart 'dis-ease', anxiety, and disorientation."
