Beautiful black tourmaline, especially lovely, with deep luster.
Raw Black tourmaline is very fragile, small pieces may chip off in transit; it is unavoidable.
Tourmaline is a shamanic stone, providing protection during ritual work. It can be used for scrying, and was traditionally used to point out a cause of trouble or an offender, and to indicate a good direction in which to move.
Black tourmaline is an excellent grounding crystal for meditation and protection.
