An Introduction to Black Tourmaline Crystal Healing Properties

Wherever you happen to be on your spiritual journey, Black Tourmaline crystal stone is an excellent crystal for everyone because it's the bodyguard stone that provides protection and elimination of negative energy. Wear it as jewelry, keep it in your car, place it all over the house, near computers. Seriously, just put it everywhere because this all-around energy cleanser is a must-have for every gemstone collection.

The Black Tourmaline crystal properties work like a sponge, soaking up all the negative energy that surrounds it. Through absorbing negativity, the stone can prevent unwanted energy from entering your home, mind, body, or spirit which gives this stone its protective quality. Because of its powerful ability to clear negativity, Black Tourmaline crystal is also a key component in everyday cleansing rituals and can help to release any unwanted energy already stored in your energy field. 

The Black Tourmaline crystal healing properties are also highly grounding and stabilizing because of the stone’s association to the lower chakras. By grounding your energy and providing a deeper sense of energetic security, this crystal helps you to feel safe as you move throughout the world.  

History & Lore

Tourmaline has been around since Medieval times, but it wasn’t until the late 1800s, when mineralogist George Kunz sold Tourmaline to Tiffany & Co., that it gained popularity. 

Before it made a name for itself in popular culture, the power of Black Tourmaline was known only to those who worked with it. Many shaman of African, Aboriginal, and Native American tribes carried Tourmaline to protect themselves from danger. 

In the 18th century, Dutch traders discovered another unique attribute of Black Tourmaline. Rubbing Black Tourmaline quickly causes the stone to become electrically charged—with a positive charge on one end of the stone and negative charge on the other end. After making this discovery, the traders used the positively charged Black Tourmaline to collect the dust from their Meerschaum pipes. 

Origin & Regionality

Black Tourmaline is found in Africa, Brazil, Pakistan, the United States and many other places around the world. 

Black Tourmaline Crystal Meaning

The Black Tourmaline crystal stone meaning is connected to its deep pitch-black color. Because of its dark coloration, this stone has a strong energy and an ability to absorb negative energy without compromising its own energy. Because it can absorb negativity, it can both protect and cleanse you and your environment. The versatility of this stone makes it a must-have for everyone. 


The Black Tourmaline crystal healing properties are most well-known for protection-related intentions. By shielding your energy in a bubble of protection, the Black Tourmaline crystal meaning can ward off unwanted energy and low vibrations that come from other people, places, or even situations. By letting your stone absorb these bad vibes for you, you can keep your energetic vibration at a higher frequency. 

When it comes to protection, the Black Tourmaline crystal meaning is powerful for more than just your personal energy – it’s also a protective shield for your home. In the same way that it acts as an energetic barrier for your energy field, it creates a barrier between the inside and outside of your home to keep bad vibes out and keep the inside vibrating at the highest frequency. The Black Tourmaline crystal stone is also one of the most powerful minerals for absorbing electromagnetic radiation, which makes it excellent for placing near computers and other electronics.
