Iron is the main source of the black colour of this type of tourmaline, although it also contains sodium and aluminum. Peruvian and Native American traditions view darkness as the place of changing oneself and initiating new endeavours. Due to its colour, it primarily cleanses, purifies and detoxifies the body and the surrounding energy field. It helps to stay grounded and focused in the present.
The black tourmaline tip is a gem of great intensity. It also has great energy and even gets some electric charge when rubbed, being able to absorb negativity. The medium tourmaline point has a height of 9 cm, while the longest one is 10.25 cm tall.
