Black Tourmaline is a stone of purification, cleansing the emotional body of negative thoughts, anxieties, anger, or feelings of unworthiness. It helps in overcoming substance abuse and releases any suicidal thoughts or self-harming tendencies.
Many people choose to use it near their bedside or on their altar. You can carry it with you in your pocket, but it can also make very attractive jewelry. Try wearing a black tourmaline bracelet on your dominant hand for support in your daily tasks or wear it as a necklace to help you remain positive and to promote clear thinking.
