Natural Tourmaline is a splendid semi-precious gemstone popularly known for its vast and diverse color spectrum. Tourmaline's chemical composition includes a group of mineral species that are closely related, sharing the same crystal structure, and the existence of a complex mixture of other elements such as calcium, manganese, and iron is mainly responsible for the color of Tourmalines.
According to legends and folklore, Tourmaline was believed to have traveled over the rainbow and gathered its beautiful colors. Different cultures have associated the properties of Tourmaline with various beliefs over time. Tourmalines were used in multiple ceremonies in ancient India to help people gain insight and distinguish between good and evil. It was believed by African civilization to have the ability to alleviate disillusionment and improve mental clarity.
The mineral hardness of tourmaline ranges from 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs scale, making it a good choice for jewelry, including rings for daily wear. Other types of gemstone jewelry, such as earrings, necklaces, and pendants, frequently feature tourmalines.
This gorgeous gemstone is available in various colors, from pink to black. While some common tourmalines such as schorl are relatively affordable, the rarer colors command a premium.
Since most colored tourmalines are formed in a liquid-rich environment, these liquids frequently become trapped inside as inclusions during the crystal growth process. In most cases, tourmaline inclusions closely mimic thread-like cavities or long hollow tubes. Eye-visible inclusions are typical in red and pink Tourmalines but are often despised if the color is intense and appealing. Regardless of the stone's vividness, tourmalines with prominent whitish inclusions are poorly received by dealers and consumers. On the other hand, green tourmalines are usually eye-clean. As a result, the presence of visible inclusions significantly reduces their value. The same is true for tourmalines of other colors: inclusions visible to the naked eye will lower the price significantly.
