Learn more about Tourmaline...
The crystal's name tourmaline, was derived from the word “toramalli”, meaning “mixed gems”, in the Sri Lankan language of Sinhalese. Tourmaline’s hardness measures as a 7 to 7.5 on the Mohs scale of mineral and gemstone hardness, meaning its toughness is considered fair. Tourmalines can be crafted into jewellery pieces that can be worn frequently so long as they are well looked after, cleaned and checked by an expert jeweller often.
Tourmaline is somewhat famous for its two or even three coloured tones in one gem. The most well-known variety of these bi-colour/tri-colour range is known as the watermelon tourmaline. Much like the colours of a watermelon, this tourmaline features a gradient which fades from a light coral pink to a pale lime green, it also sometimes features bands of white. These style tourmalines can appear in several combinations and are a highly prized version of tourmaline.
