Tourmalinated quartz is thought to provide a balancing of yin/yang energies and release negative patterns. It is used by some to treat disorders of the digestive tract and to detoxify the body. Tourmalinated quartz is aligned with the Zodiac signs Libra, Capricorn and Scorpio. It is associated with the 6th, Third Eye or Brow Chakra, but is also believed to be effective on the secondary chakras of the hands and feet, including the meridians.
