I Carry black tourmaline (also known as schorl) with me at all times both to give to others and to help absorb any negativity that comes from around me. In ancient times, magicians used black tourmaline to ward off “demons”. Along with absorbing negativity and providing protection, black tourmaline also helps keep you grounded, and it promotes self-confidence and can help purify environments where a lot of emotional negativity has occurred. If a piece of black tourmaline breaks, it has become saturated with the negative energy it has absorbed. Discard it (just return it the Earth), and get a new piece.
