Many factors contribute to all the variety of colors tourmaline can exhibit. It’s generally agreed that traces of high iron, & possibly titanium, induce green, blue and black colors. Manganese produces reds & pinks, and possibly yellows. Some pink & yellow tourmalines might owe their hues to color centers caused by radiation, which can be natural or laboratory-induced.
I love how the tourmaline sticks straight out of the quartz! The clear quartz and black tourmaline are a great contrasting pair! Making these pieces perfect for almost anything, wether it be for a specimen collection or even a unique wire wrap.
Metaphysically speaking, these tourmalited quartz specimens have the combined properties of both clear quartz and black tourmaline. Clear quartz amplifies energies and intentions. While black tourmaline cleanses and removes negative energy. Overall grounding, balancing and protecting all chakras.
