Hailed as one of the most important gemstone discoveries of the 20th century, Brazilian Paraiba Tourmaline took both the industry and consumer markets by storm. Its unusually intense 'neon' hues set it apart from all other known tourmalines, giving it a provenance like no other. First unearthed in Brazil's Paraiba state, stones with similar color and composition were later found in the neighboring state of Rio Grande do Norte, the source for this most exciting gemstone offering. Treasured for its brilliantly electric hue's, Brazilian Paraiba tourmaline is a stone that remains peerless today!

Once proposed to be the national gemstone of the United States, tourmaline is found all over the world and in a variety of colors. Tourmaline is the most colorful of all gemstones because, according to an ancient Egyptian legend, it passed through a rainbow on its journey to Earth and brought all of the colors of the rainbow with it. Tourmaline is a mineral group comprised of multiple species of complex borosilicates. Lovingly referred to by mineralogists as the garbage can mineral, its crystal structure allows for the incorporation of a wide range of elements, many of which cause the stunning color varieties and spectacular zoning of tourmaline, including copper, manganese, iron, and titanium. Major tourmaline species include liddicoatite, dravite, uvite, schorl, and elbaite.
