A Blue Green Tourmaline in a gorgeous rectangle cut, that gives this gem lots of sparkle. Bright green color with those blue flashes!

In the fascinating world of gemstones, the tourmaline is very special. Tourmaline is one of our most popular gemstones - and apart from that, almost every tourmaline is unique! Tourmalines are the most colorful gemstone group. They occur in all variations, green, red, blue, yellow, colorless and black. Some Tourmalines come in two or more colors at once and are called bi-colored. There is no other gemstone group whose diversity of color exceeds that of the Tourmalines.

There are tourmalines which change their color when the light changes from daylight to artificial light, and some show the light effect of a cat's eye. Tourmaline is sometimes referred to as the “electric stone,” tourmaline becomes statically charged when heated or rubbed, attracting dust, lint and small pieces of paper.

The name tourmaline comes from the Singhalese words 'tura mali'. In translation, this means something like 'stone with mixed colors', referring to the color spectrum of this gemstone, which outdoes that of all other precious stones. They often have two or more colors; tourmalines can even go from Red to green and blue to yellow.

Tourmaline possesses one of the widest color ranges, reproducing every conceivable color in the universe. Tourmaline is fairly hard and durable, making it very wearable and an ideal gem for jewelry.

No two tourmalines are exactly alike. This gemstone has an endless number of faces, and for that reason it suits all moods. No wonder that magical powers have been attributed to it since ancient times.
