This particular black tourmaline displays streaks of red where iron is present. Due to the complex and various combinations of elements in tourmaline, it is the most multicoloured mineral type known, occurring in virtually every colour of the spectrum. It has many interesting optical properties. Some specimens appear darker or differ in colour when seen through their horizontal versus vertical axis. Certain tourmalines exhibit chattoyancy when polished. This mineral is also piezoelectric which means that through mechanical action an electric pulse is formed, similar to quartz.
Tourmaline is sought after as a talisman of protection to deflect and counteract negative energies. It is also used to guard against radiation and environmental pollutants.
