Black Tourmaline (Schrol) is a very supportive stone that protects us from external influences, dispersing stress, tension and negative energy. It grounds and anchors light energy within the physical body, promoting inner wisdom, mastery, individuality, stability, courage and patience being peace to the heart and mind. Black Tourmaline also protects against the negative effects of electromagnetic radiation and inharmonious energies. It grounds spiritual energy for increased radiance and light during dark times. It strengthens spiritual consciousness, making life among non-believers easier. Place a black tourmaline wand at the feet or knees with the pointed end pointing toward the toes. This will encourage negative energy to leave the body, in keeping with black tourmaline meaning.
