No gemstone has such richness in color variation as tourmaline. It can be found in Pink, red, blue and green and various subtle shades in-between.
Pink tourmaline gets its color from manganese, while green Tourmaline derives its color from iron and chromium.
Tourmaline is found in a number of locations including Brazil and Africa.
The wearing of Tourmaline is thought to surround one with a strong protective shield and to make any woman who wears it desirable to men. In particular, pink tourmaline is associated with joyfulness, vivacity and the release of emotional pain.
