About the mineral
Black Tourmaline

This silicate mineral compounded with iron is piezolectric and pyroelectric, generating electricity through pressure and heat. This causes it to release negative ions and infrared radiation. Tourmaline is not a single mineral, but a group of several closely related minerals. The three most well-known members are Elbaite, Schorl, and Dravite.

HISTORY

Black Tourmaline, also known as Schorl, is believed to have been used by ancient shamans, healers & magicians for protection.
