Tourmalinated quartz is essentially a mass of quartz with tourmaline residing among its formation. A lot of times, tourmalinated quartz is formed from a quartz base and “needles” of tourmaline among, producing an unusual look for a natural rock. The majority of it is now mined in Brazil. A combination of spiritual connection and grounding its an excellent protection stone for Empaths because it deflects the negative energy and still allows for the meditative properties and amplification of energy that clear quartz brings. It cleanses the auras and marries the properties of both black tourmaline and clear quartz making it both very powerful and protective. This crystal can be used to bring good fortune and access higher consciousness and can be carried on you at all times as a good luck charm.
