The black tourmaline is also called Schorl. Unlike other tourmalines, Schorl is opaque and often deep black. Tourmaline owes this dark color to the many iron compounds that occur in this mineral.
Stone of the Mixed Colors
Tourmaline has been known in the Mediterranean region since ancient times. In Western Europe, the stone gained popularity in 1703 when the Dutch brought this stone from Sri Lanka. The stone was given the name 'Turmali'. This means in Sinhalese: 'Stone of the mixed colors'. The Black variant is the most common tourmaline.
Black tourmaline and radiation
Black tourmaline grounds and protects against negative energy in all its forms: computer radiation, electromagnetic radiation, black magic, curses, stress and tension. As a result, the stone has a relaxing effect, increases vitality and promotes a neutral attitude and logical rational thinking. Physically, the stone has a positive effect on the immune system.
