Tourmaline is a gemstone that comes in many different colors and is valued for its unique beauty and versatility. It belongs to the minerals, more precisely to the silicates, and is very popular among both collectors and jewelry lovers due to its special properties.
The name “tourmaline” comes from Sinhalese and means something like “stone with mixed colors”. In fact, this gemstone can be found in a wide range of colors including green, pink, blue, yellow, brown and even black. Sometimes it even happens that a single tourmaline has different colors in one crystal. This phenomenon is called “bicolor” and makes the stone even more desirable.
