Black tourmaline is a shamanic stone that provides protection during ritual work. It can be used as a search tool, and was traditionally used to indicate a cause of problems or an offender. It correctly indicates the best direction to move safely and accurately. It calms panic attacks, specially those caused by dark or confined spaces, or in places where the atmosphere is frightening. At the workplace, have a black tourmaline near you for a few minutes when you need to wake-up your mind or when you need total concentration. It provides excellent protection against environmental contaminants, electromagnetic smog and radiation associated with mobile phones, computers and other electronic equipment.
