Greetings and Brightest Blessings,
This month's Crystal is Tourmaline! It is very popular as it comes in a rainbow of colors. I want to talk about the most readily available and common-Black or "Schorl". One of the best protection and shielding stones ever! The black variety of Tourmaline has been found in a large number of locations... including Pakistan, Australia, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Africa and the USA. The good thing about this stone is that it does not absorb negative energy, it transforms it into positive . Sleep with a hunk of this under your pillow for seeral reasons; to cleanse and protect the Etheric Body, and to protect the physical body while you sleep and are vunerable! This stone aids in strengthening the immune system, and works to minimize Arthiritis Pain. Working with Root and Sacral chakras can help with grounding. It has been said the Black Tourmaline proects against Psychic Attack, magic Attack and shield negative energy sent by others.

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king
Love and Miss You Dad!
