Crystals & Stones

This zone will include healing as well as metaphysical properties of crystals, minerals, stones and rocks. More will come up as new questions and discussions occur within the zone.\r\nA really good source of basic information is a website called Crystal Vaults, much of the information included here about the basics of crystals will be from there. The information there is by no means exhaustive and to be clear form the beginning they are indeed in sales and no, I don't work for them nor do I stand to gain a thing by linking them, their info is just a useful starting point. I include this "go-to" for quick information as the tip of a  very large iceberg that is only the beginning of a long journey to learning more. Consider it a catalyst to knowledge that will hopefully lead to the wisdom that comes in the experiences birthed by that knowledge. It will start off as very basic "stuff" and expand in time.

Black Tourmaline

    Black Tourmaline

    Aka: Schrol

    Repels and blocks negative energies. Transforms dense energy into a lighter vibration and promotes a sense of empowerment and self confidence. This function of turning negative energy into positive is great for when you have to deal with people who like to stir the pot, in other words, people who like drama. Black tourmaline will protect you from people who moan and groan about life, who complain about their lot but take no action to better the situation.

    Black tourmaline helps in times of feeling hopeless. It helps when people feel suicidal and aids in the release of chronic worry and feelings of unworthiness. It inspires a positive attitude and increases physical vitality. Often these feelings are brought on by having to live among those who are not awakened to the same things you are, carrying the stone with you helps with that.

    Aligns the energy centers of the body and channels healing throughout the system. It calms panic attacks, especially those caused by small dark spaces or feeling backed into a corner. It helps with other fears as well like fear of doctors or dentists, though I could wear a body suit of it and still be a little put off by their lot.

    Carrying this stone helps one to have a more objective and clear view of the world. It is of great benefit to folks who live or work in a challenging environment. It is good to have around when facing any difficult circumstances. Just holding one for a few minutes will help one to focus whether it be in a high pressure environment or during meditation. It also balances the right and left hemispheres of the brain and aligns mental processes.

    Black tourmaline can easily be charged by heating (pyroelectricity) or rubbing it (piezoelectricity). It is said that once it is charged one end becomes positive, the other negative allowing it to attract or repel small bits of paper, or more famously, ash. Black tourmaline is known for turning negative energy to positive energy but if there are inclusions of mica in it, and if that negativity is coming at you from someone else, it will send that negative energy right back to them.

    Black tourmaline provides protection while performing rituals or doing other workings. Used effectively for scrying and as a pendulum, especially if you want it to point you in the right direction.

    Finally, black tourmaline shields against environmental pollutants and radiation associated with mobile phones and computers. I has been reported to be helpful to those who have motion sickness and even restore luster and shine to hair and nails. It is associated with alleviating trouble with the lower back, legs, ankles, feet and spinal alignment. It helps with pain relief and assists with torn or strained muscles, arthritis and scar tissue. It strengthens the heart, immune system and adrenal glands as well.
