Tourmaline has a special energy that can cleanse, purify and transform negativity into a high vibrational energy. Protecting our Aura and shielding us from the negative energy of others, Tourmaline is a great stone to have at the office or anywhere else we encounter energy vampires. Additionally, Tourmaline is one of the best grounding stones that seems to take effect almost immediately upon touching the stone. Its grounding abilities work directly with our Root Chakra to open up our base, increase our energy and vitality and disperse the tension and stress we hold onto. Tourmaline wants us to approach life more calm, relaxed and laid back with an upbeat, positive attitude. It encourages us to think rationally and clearly by keeping us calm, cool and collected no matter what situation we are faced with. Tourmaline has immense healing energies and should be an important addition to our healing crystal collections!
