Also known as Shorl, Black Tourmaline is the ultimate protection stone. When this stone traps negative energy within its inner structure, it transmutes it into a lighter vibration, replacing it with a protective shield instead. It protects against EMF energy, ill-wishing, toxic energy, spells, and psychic attack by absorbing the energy. Grid your home with black tourmaline to provide protection. Place a piece over your thymus to stop jealousy, ill-will, or a psychic attack. If you know who is causing the attack, place a piece of black tourmaline on a piece of paper with their name. 

This stone helps you on your life path by allowing you to recognize how holding onto negative and/or toxic emotions can hurt you from within, which can create a disease that will manifest physically. It also helps you to act and think more positively so you can create a healthier lifestyle and manifest more abundance into your life. Black Tourmaline raises self-confidence, balance male/female energy within the body, and helps to take you deep into your inner self.  It also protects from cell phones, radiation, psychic attacks, and spells.
