This is my number one choice for protection and I have seen it literally ‘switch off’ an attack for someone who was pale, panicking, sweating and shaking a moment before. Black tourmaline provides firm grounding, which is a big factor in feeling safe and secure. The action of this crystal is also strongly purifying. You can get black tourmaline in varying sizes. I have some large chunks that I use as grounding stones for clients, plus some smaller natural points that are great for using in a crystal grid or on a distant healing layout. Keep a piece of black tourmaline on your person if you are living or working in difficult energies and cleanse it daily.
