Description: Tourmalinated quartz is a type of quartz crystal that contains needle-like inclusions of black tourmaline. The name "tourmalinated" is derived from the word tourmaline, which is a mineral that forms long, slender crystals.
Tourmalinated quartz is usually transparent to translucent and can range in color from clear to smoky gray. The black tourmaline needles can be fine and wispy or thick and heavily included.
This unique combination of quartz and tourmaline is said to have powerful energetic properties, combining the amplifying and purifying effects of quartz with the grounding and protective energies of tourmaline. It is often used in crystal healing and meditation practices to help release negative energy and promote a sense of balance and harmony.
