There are few stones more grounding than Black Tourmaline…but when carved into the sacred geometrical form of the cube, this mineral becomes the ultimate grounding stone!
Black Tourmaline is one of our favorite minerals in the world. The inky black surface of quality piece is unrivaled – and metaphysically, it is the ultimate grounding stone. Also called “schorl” (for the German town where it was originally discovered), Black Tourmaline is a powerhouse of energy, being an incredibly protective stone for sensitive people, empathy, places of worship, homes, offices, and sacred spaces. Black Tourmaline is absolutely wonderful to use in crystal grids, gridding your home or property, used as the center of a crystal grid in your home, or carrying with you to help diffuse negative energy or toxic people. And did you know: most of our energy is ungrounded, and when it is ungrounded, it isn’t useful. For many empathy and intuitive, learning to ground is how we can most effectively use our gifts!

These pieces are POLISHED! Why is that special?
Polished Black Tourmaline is very hard to find, namely that it requires SO much tourmaline to polish it down to a solid pebble. As you probably know, tourmaline is striated, and is rarely very smooth. These incredible cubes must start as a very large piece of Tourmaline to get to this size!
For empaths or sensitive people, Tourmaline is a wonderful tool – the act of polishing the tourmaline gentles its energy, making it softer, subtler and more accessible, metaphysically.
This listing is for ONE (1) piece of Polished Black Tourmaline Cube. Please choose your size from the drop down menu. Each cube measures approximately 1.2-1.3 inches.
These measurements are ESTIMATES only, and each piece varies slightly. Each one is like a smoothly polished, black mirror. They are stunning specimens and feel so deeply grounding when held in the hand.
ABOUT BLACK TOURMALINE
Black Tourmaline is one of the strongest protectors and grounders of the mineral world. This is a hard core grounding stone – think of it as a metaphysical anchor. It’s incredibly protective, against a variety of threats, physical and spiritual and mental. If Smokey Quartz is a German Shepherd, than Black Tourmaline is a Rottweiler! For some, their presence can be overpowering. However, strong personalities tend to be attracted to, and are able to work with, Black Tourmaline. Empaths especially love to use this stone while in public or in crowds because it quiets the emotional “chatter” of other people, giving them some much needed peace. If it’s too strong for you at first, start with some smoky quartz and build up to working with Black Tourmaline. Strong stones need strong personalities – at least at first!
Black Tourmaline also repels and blocks negative energies and psychic attack. It cleanses, purifies, and transforms negative, stagnant or dense energy into a lighter vibration. It’s a popular metaphysical stone, and had been used historically by magicians and shamans protection from negative entities. Today, it’s still a talisman of protection: from psychic attack, destructive forces, and even EMF (electro magnetic) pollution, such as computers, laptops, tablets and smartphones. It’s a wonderful stone to keep on your work desk for this reason. It’s a power stone, encouraging self confidence, and helps you face difficult situations with grace and ease. Some people like to have it to keep the “chatter” of other peoples’ emotions at bay; others find that it helps deal with toxic people or “energy vampires.” Black Tourmaline is a stone of purification – cleansing the emotional body of negativity and excess fear, anxiety or worry. It’s a wonderful stone to help de-stress 🙂
All stones and crystals in our shop have been cleansed with our natural mountain spring water (except for those that may dissolve in water, such as selenite) and have been smudged with organic white sage, harvested sustainably and produced fairly.
Please note that crystals, minerals and fossils are a natural product and are rarely perfect. I do my best to capture each side of each piece in the photos. Please remember that your computer monitor or screen may depict colors differently than they actually appear. All stones are photographed in natural light and the images are never altered or enhanced (just like the stones!). These pieces are creations of Mother Nature that have weathered thousands of years in the earth. 🙂
