#22 H369-006 Tri-Color Tourmaline 25x11.5 EC 23.75cts TUA

    • Tourmaline's enchantment lies in its treasure trove of tinted choices, having been found in most every hue known to man. Reds, greens, blues, and pinks sit next to examples of purple, orange, yellow, colorless, and even black tourmaline. A true joy to the collector, its finest cannot be pegged to one specific color or combination, but instead brings joy and marvel from many levels. One of the rarest types of Tourmalines is the Bi-color which is usually full of flaws so a flawless Bi-color Tourmaline is super rare and a Tri-color is even rarer.

      Tourmaline has been known to man for centuries, even though its gemological properties and classification has only been recorded within the last few hundred years. High jewels assumed to have been set with rubies and emeralds have been found to hold remarkable tourmalines instead. The name tourmaline was given after the Sinhalese word, “tourmali”, meaning mixed parcel, an ode to the arrangement of color often seen. Tourmaline is typically found in areas with heavy pegmatite formation, making Brazil, Mozambique, Madagascar, Nigeria, Kenya, Malawi, the United States, and others being important sources of the gem.
