Mountain Hollow Crystals
Black Tourmaline Palm Stone
Black Tourmaline, also known as Schorl is one of the most popular stones for protection, purification and negativity clearing.
Fun Fact: Heating or cooling, or rubbing a Tourmaline Crystal (I don’t recommend you try with these) can cause it to become electrically charged, with one end negative and the other positive. When charged, the crystal will attract dust particles or bits of paper. This property of pryoelectricity (from heat) or piezoelectricity (from pressure or rubbing) was known to Dutch traders who used the crystals to pull ashes meerschaum pipes, and they called them aschentrekkers or ‘ash pullers’.**

*please note Black Tourmaline as a whole doesn’t always polish easily due to its raw form, so some inconsistencies may be seen. Some of these pieces contain Quartz inclusions and iron staining.
