Since black tourmaline is pleochroic, it might also be green when viewed along a different axis. This crystal is also piezoelectric which means that through mechanical action an electric pulse is formed, similar to quartz. Tourmaline is sought after as a talisman of protection to deflect and counteract negative energies. It is also used to guard against radiation and environmental pollutants.
Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means wheel. It refers to the energy centers found in the body. Most Eastern traditions describe seven major Chakras positioned along the midline of the body from the base of the spine to the crown of the head.
