Paraiba Turmaline

This extraordinary colored gemstone belongs to the tourmaline family. It can appear in quite different color combinations. The most sought-after is the turquoise color, which is reminiscent of the sparkling blue of the sea. This unique color is created by traces of copper.
The deposits in the Brazilian state of Paraiba, from which it takes its name, are practically exhausted. Since 2005, Mozambique has been known as the main supplier of copper-bearing tourmalines - which is also where this fantastic stone with 1.48 Ct. comes from.
