Tourmaline is a hard gemstone that comes in a variety of colors, but the most common is the iron-rich black variety known as Schorl. This variety contains the most iron, accounting for both the color and the stone’s reputation as the best all-around protective energy magnet around. Many people keep a piece with them all the time – either in a pocket or purse, or worn as a pendant or bracelet.
