Tourmaline Quartz, also known as Tourmalinated Quartz, is a variety of Clear Quartz with naturally occurring needle-like inclusions of Black Tourmaline, also known as Schorl.
Tourmaline purifies ones own energies and protects from negativity, while Quartz amplifies energies focused through it. This combination makes Tourmaline Quartz a powerful shield-stone. Tourmaline Quartz balances yin / yang energies. It harmonizes opposite elements and polarities, and turns negative thoughts and energies into positive ones.
Psychologically, it helps to integrate and heal the shadow energies, alleviating self-sabotage.
