Black Tourmaline is known for absorbing and providing protection against negative energy - from the environment, people, and electronic frequencies. It has strong connections to the earth and can help you feel grounded, balanced, and self-confident by drawing emotional waste through your body and into the earth. It is considered a mental healer that can promote a relaxed and positive attitude, and clear thought.
Since Black Tourmaline absorbs energy, if it breaks you should consider it to be at its maximum capacity and you can discard it by returning it to the earth. You can also cleanse your black tourmaline by burying it in the earth, or by using smoke, sound or selenite (but not water).
