Black tourmaline is the traditional birthstone for those born under the sign of Capricorn. It is thought to bring protection against negative energy and ill wishes from others. This stone has long been a symbol of strength and spiritual power.
The Black Tourmaline crystal properties work like a sponge, soaking up all the negative energy that surrounds it. Through absorbing negativity, the stone can prevent unwanted energy from entering your home, mind, body, or spirit which gives this stone its protective quality.
