Tourmaline crystal chips are a great addition to rituals or workings of many kinds.
They are useful in candle magic, mojo bags, talismans, jewelry, crafting, and more.
Tourmaline is a crystalline boron silicate mineral compounded with a variety of elements. This gemstone can be found in a wide variety of colors, with black and red being common (we carry black tourmaline). Although tourmaline was largely unknown to ancient magicians, it has entered today’s practices as a stone attributed with the power to aid protection workings as well as matters of love, friendship, wealth, health, peace, and courage. It is a unique stone in many ways: it can appear translucent from one angle and opaque from another depending on how it is cut or chipped and when it is rubbed to create friction it polarizes (one end becoming positively charged and the other becoming negatively charged).
Black tourmaline is a brittle, opaque black stone.
It is commonly used for grounding as it is said to represent the Earth element.
