* I had a customer, who had a lot of problems at work, she felt the bad energy from her boss. I gave her a necklace for work, and every morning when she arrived she was sitting, holding it for a few moments, and then she started to work. She felt the difference, when one day, she forgot to wear it. Since then, she doesn't take it off. I also gave her a small piece to put on her front desk . . . . it did miracles.
*In industry, Tourmalines are highly valued as electrical tuning circuits for conducting television and radio frequencies. They are used for their durability since high frequencies can be passed through them without shattering, as many crystals do.
Tourmaline strengthens the sense of smell, and in that respect, it can also enhance the perception of pheromones which produces an aphrodisiac effect.
