Now that I have a little more free time I have been able to research the powers of stones. Black tourmaline is a power house. When I am on ambulance duty, I now keep a black tourmaline in one pocket, amethyst in the other and my spirit lock on my neck. I am well protected! This necklace is 24 and 1/2 inches long. It is strung with black spinel, ruby, turquoise, roman glass, carnelian, chrysoprase, labradorite, apple coral amethyst, 2000 year old turquoise and hill tribe silver from Thailand.
