The Magic of Black Crystals

Black crystals are stones of protection and will power, and can provide you with the energy to develop your potential. Black is associated with both the elements of spirit and earth, and is connected to the energies of Saturn. Black is the colour you get when all colours are absorbed, and so it is ideal for soaking up negativity; it has protective properties.

Due to its tendency to absorb, black tends to make things look smaller and in crystal work this could be applies to problems that you wish to diminish. It is also seen as the colour of unrealised potential, of ideas not yet manifested.

Colour of Endings

In the West, black is a funeral colour and associated with grief and endings. As a Saturnian colour, it is linked with tings coming to an end and is used for brining in spell and ritual. Black is a mysterious colour, containing hidden qualities. It falls under the governance of Saturn and has many magical uses.

The Crystal of Death

The association that black holds with health extends to crystals of this colour, and it is not a modern association. This link probably originates from the colour’s rulership by Saturn, a planet of endings, and it has been evidenced since early South American cultures through to the use of jet in Victorian funerals.

Protective Amulets

Black stones are often attributes with protective powers, due to the colours ability to absorb negativity, and used as amulets. Onyx, for example protects from demons and the Evil eye, and black tourmaline wards off nightmares. It has been said that black crystals can trap spirits within them and an old myth recounts that the asterism (star) in black star diopside was actually three genies who were trapped in the stone.

Wear a necklace of black tourmaline as you get ready for bed, to help protect you from bad dreams.

      The black color that we see is in fact the color of the impurities and not of the stone itself. Natural black diamonds are very rare and only found in a few regions in the world. They are among the toughest of diamond varieties and are very durable, with a Mohs rating of 10.

  2. I think of black simply as an absence, an emptiness.

      Black gemstones correspond to the first chakra, grounding, and protection. They each have different meanings, but many are used for purifying negative emotions, protection from negative energy, and connecting to the Earth through the root chakra.

      Black crystals such as hematite, agate, black tourmaline, and onyx, are power crystals that, like some red and scarlet minerals, relieve your fears of physical harm. Each of these crystals should be part of your life. A black tourmaline, besides being a great grounding force, can also give you a sense of well being.
