Mineralogy of Black Tourmaline Quartz
Color: Black Tourmaline enclosed in transparent Quartz
Gravity: Varies, 2.65-3.2
Fluorescence: Blue (short wave)
Transparency: Transparent to opaque
Location: Tourmaline and Clear Quartz are found in numerous locations around the world and can occasionally be found entwined in Brazil, India, Madagascar, Switzerland and the United States.
Rock Family: Black Tourmaline Quartz is technically a rock, rather than a mineral. As an easy way to understand the difference, think of rocks as being like cookies and minerals as being the ingredients which make up those cookies. Many different minerals are used to create a rock! In this case, two Silicate minerals are involved, Clear Quartz and Black Tourmaline.
Formation: Tourmaline and Quartz are both formed in igneous rocks. In this case, the Tourmaline grows first, and then the Quartz crystal grows around and eventually engulfs the Tourmaline crystal. Enclosed crystals in Quartz are sometimes called inclusions, or more properly, protogenetic minerals.
Mining: Tourmaline is a fairly common mineral, but gem quality crystals are relatively rare, and found almost exclusively in Pegmatite. Numerous mines exist whose primary purpose is finding gem-quality Tourmaline. Black Tourmaline Quartz are a secondary stone found in such mines.
Enhancements: Synthetic Tourmalines exist, but are typically used for research purposes and are not readily available to the general public. On occasion Tourmaline may be heat treated to lighten its color; for example, a dark green Tourmaline may be heat treated to create an emerald color. Heat treated Tourmalines are used primarily in the fine gem industry. That being said, all Black Tourmaline Quartz can be considered fully natural, enhanced only by tumbling, cutting and polishing.
Synonyms: Schorl, Warriorite in Quartz
History of Black Tourmaline Quartz
Black Tourmaline Quartz is a relatively new stone on the metaphysical market and has no unique history.
Healing Properties of Black Tourmaline Quartz
Spiritual: Black Tourmaline is one of the best protective stones available, particularly for anyone who spends hours each day working/living in a negative atmosphere. It offers protection against psychic attacks and energetic vampires while simultaneously acting as a purifying agent to clear our auric field of anything that does not serve us. This purifying property also allows us to elevate our own consciousness and move forward on the path to Enlightenment. Black Tourmaline is a wonderful grounding stone that can help us stay centered in our own bodies and true to our path. It can also reveal ways we can become more altruistic on a practical physical level, enabling us to create true positive change in the world. Black Tourmaline is attuned to the ALL Chakras, and linked to the astrological signs of Libra and Capricorn. It is connected to the element Storm and vibrates to the numbers 2, 3, and 4.
Emotional: Black Tourmaline is an exceptionally grounding and protective stone. It helps disperse tension and stress and encourages us to have a positive attitude regardless of circumstances. It can help us to stay heart-centered, logically-minded and able to take ownership for our own “stuff” without feeling like we are responsible for other people’s “stuff.” Black Tourmaline helps us to feel safe and to disengage from obsessive thoughts and chronic worry.
Mental: Black Tourmaline helps clear away negative thoughts, and instead encourages us to just relax and be sensible. It helps us to stay emotionally neutral and to think rationally and with practical creativity. Black Tourmaline also helps us to recognize our own mistakes and to calmly determine how we can fix them. It ensures that we don’t “beat ourselves up” mentally for our mistakes, and instead helps us to realize that we are still learning, growing, and that everything is going to ok in the end. Black Tourmaline is an especially good stone for anyone seeking a better work/life balance or who needs to take stock of their real priorities.
Physical: Black Tourmaline is also believed to provide protection from electromagnetic smog from cellphones, computers, and other electronics. It is considered particularly beneficial for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy. It is also commonly used to provide pain relief, strengthen the immune system, and help detox the body. Its energy is gentler than other “black stones” and so tends to be easier to carry or wear for extended periods of time.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
***Black Tourmaline Quartz has the same qualities as pure Black Tourmaline, however, the energy is magnified due to the presence of Clear Quartz.
