5 Interesting Facts About Tourmaline Crystal Family

Black tourmaline is a powerful energy crystal for protection against negativity of all kinds, including psychic protection and EMF protection. This is also a very spiritually grounding stone.
Here are five amazing facts about this healing crystal:
  1. The name tourmaline comes from the Singhalese word (from north India) “touramalli” which means “mixed coloured stones”. Since tourmaline is found in so many different colours, they were often confused with other gems. From the 1600s when many tourmaline crystals were mistaken for zircon to referring the green tourmalines in Brazil as green emeralds, there is still a lot of confusion over the identification of these stones.
  1. Tourmaline is described as “crystalline boron silicate”. Each variety of tourmaline has its own chemical formula with somewhat varying elements. These elements include aluminium, boron, silicon, chromium, oxygen, hydrogen, potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, iron and lithium besides other elements. Though aluminium is toxic to the human body, all elements are bonded to each other in the crystal which prevents them from entering into the human body.
  1. Tourmaline has a lot of pyroelectric properties, which means that tourmaline crystals are naturally, electrically polarized and actually contain electric fields as a result. Due to this, tourmaline is referred to as the “Sri Lankan magnet” due to its ability to attract and repel hot ashes.
  1. Tourmaline has a six atom member ring crystal and it occurs as long and slender, to a thick prison or column-like crystals. Those energy stones are usually triangular in cross-section, often with curved striated faces. The ends of crystal are sometimes asymmetrical. Tourmaline has distinguished by its three-sided prisms as no other mineral has three sides.
  1. The formula for the various tourmaline varieties is very complex since they contain many elements and many combinations of those elements. Tourmalines have one of the most complicated formulas of all minerals.
