A popular man by the name of Pierre Curis (one of the recipients for the Nobel Prize in Physics), confirmed that tourmaline possessed weak electrical emission in the process of pyroelectricity and piezoelectricity.

Additionally, in recent studies, Japanese researchers concluded that it carries a stable charge of .06mA. Tourmaline also holds it current in any form whether it is crushed, broken or small in size. This is why it dubbed its name of “the electric stone” in parts of Asia.
