Wearing tourmaline is said to have many benefits, including:


Tourmaline measures 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. This means that it is fairly hard and scratch resistant. Tourmaline is also crack-free and extremely durable.

The rarest and most expensive tourmaline is the neon blue or green Paraiba variety that is colored with traces of copper.

Due to its dark color and grounding properties, black tourmaline is associated with the root chakra (this is all about grounding and protection).
