What sets tourmaline apart?

Tourmaline - a precious stone from the silicate group. The name of this beautiful mineral comes from the Sinhalese word "turmal", which, according to some sources, means the ability to attract, while according to others, it refers to its multicolored nature.

The second definition is most fitting, as this stone dazzles with a multitude of colors. Green, blue, pink - these are just some of the hues in which tourmaline occurs. Moreover, the colors of a single specimen can change! How is this possible? This mineral exhibits strong pleochroism, meaning its colors vary depending on the direction from which it's observed.

How to recognize genuine tourmaline?

You've bought or received a stone and wonder how to check if it's tourmaline? We'll help you out! As mentioned earlier, tourmaline changes color depending on the angle of light - for example, it may appear colorless from the side and green from the top. Pay attention to this when verifying if the mineral is authentic.

On the other hand, the extensive range of colors in which tourmalines occur makes it difficult to distinguish them from other natural stones. However, if you're dealing with a raw mineral, it's quite simple. Tourmalines typically have irregular ends, their cross-section is often triangular, and their surfaces are striated.

Tourmaline - Properties

  • Color Diversity:

Pink tourmaline? Watermelon-colored, or perhaps orange? In nature, this mineral occurs in almost all color variants. The attractiveness of its coloring is enhanced by the fact that it can either be monochromatic, i.e., uniform, or polychromatic - a combination of several colors.

  • High Hardness:

A durable and scratch-resistant stone? Tourmaline meets this criterion! On the Mohs scale, it ranges from 7 to 7.5 out of 10 points. Thanks to this, it is eagerly used in jewelry production.

  • Water Resistance:

Another reason why tourmaline excels as a jewelry material? Water resistance! This characteristic allows you to wear tourmaline earrings or bracelets every day without worrying that they will be damaged.
