I bought a shower head containing tourmaline and germinium, which soften and purify the water. Is this correct?

I have seen these for sale. Not sure if they work or not and if its just a marketing ploy or actually does something. Tourmaline is piezoelectric so perhaps this can be effective in attracting impurities or particles, though I am someone skeptical of its effectiveness in showerheads.
