Tourmaline (black) - Meaning and Effect

Tourmaline (black) is a primary mineral by formation, its crystal structure is trigonal, it is black in color and belongs to the class of ring silicates. Primary minerals are formed when liquids solidify. A disordered, unstructured something becomes a solid form. Trigonal minerals have a triangular internal structure. The triangle is the simplest geometric shape, a basic shape at rest in itself. Ring silicates are very orderly in themselves. Black objects "swallow" the colored light, neutralizing it. 

Summarizing these mineralogical properties, Tourmaline (black) presents the image of a mineral that promotes neutrality and serenity. The black tourmaline supports to become sober, clear and rational. In gemstone medicine, Tourmaline (black) is therefore often used for protection and grounding.

There are quite a few synonyms, like Aphrizit, Pierreponit, Schirl, Schirlich, Schörgel, Schorlein, Schorlet, Schörlich, Schorlit, Schörlspat and Schurl, but they are more confusing than helpful. Mineralogically correct is the name SCHÖRL.

Stabilization of black tourmaline 

In its natural state,  black tourmaline is very friable and unstable, so that only very small pieces can be cut from the raw material, but not long massage pens and rods. However, because its effects make it indispensable, knowledgeable cutters have developed a process by which black tourmaline can be processed into larger pieces: The rough pieces are placed in a resin bath before processing so that the porous material can soak up. After drying, the rough stone can then be processed into styluses, rods, Large Palmstones, and other popular shapes. Most wellness and massage stones made of black tourmaline are treated in this way.
