 Tourmalinated Quartz is a unique mineral containing Black Tourmaline (sometimes referred to as Schorl) needles included within a Quartz structure. The Quartz can be in a variety of forms such as points, masses, and druzes. Little is known about the history of this mineral or who even found it. The first recorded specimens are believed to have come from Brazil in the mid to late 1900’s. Since then, a majority of this mineral still comes from this South American country;with some deposits in the US. California’s infamous Tourmaline King Mine and Blue Lady Mine in San Diego have extracted some beautiful examples of this combination mineral.

Tourmaline Quartz strengthens the body's energy field against external forces and helps deflect harmful environmental influences, both practical and spiritual. An effective grounding stone, this mineral can eliminate crystallized emotional patterns that have not been in one's own best interest.
