Electro-magnetic Frequencies

Electromagnetic fields are present in our environment and can be produced in nature, as well as by man-made sources including X-rays, higher frequency radio waves via TV antennas, computers, microwaves, radio stations or mobile phone base stations. Effects on our health include an array of eclectic symptoms such as  headaches, anxiety, suicide, depression, nausea, fatigue and low libido.

Black Tourmaline (Schorl) and Shungite stone are two of the best crystals to use against the ill effects of low frequency and high frequency electromagnetic waves (EMF).

Tourmaline’s Complex Rainbow

Tourmaline is a complex group of minerals. The slightest change in the mineral composition can create a completely different set of colors. Known for its vast array of colors, it is also has the property of exhibiting different colors by reflected or transmitted light (dichroism). Tourmaline exhibits pyro-electricity, becoming electrically charged when heated, then cooled, giving them a positive charge at one end and a negative charge at the other. They also become charged under pressure, changing the polarity, creating an oscillation of the stone.

 

 

Cleansing & Charging Tourmaline

~ Cleansing a crystal is always a good idea to rid it of energies (negative or otherwise) that it may have picked up during handling and excessive use.

~ Charging a crystal is bringing its energy levels back up, after use and cleansing. Like re-charging a battery after it has lost its energy.  A great way to do this (and remind you that it is time to do so) is during a full moon.
