PARAIBA TOURMALINE discovered in 1989 is one of the most sought after gemstones on the planet. It is a Rare Gemstone. The stunning Paraiba Tourmaline ranges from swimming pool blue to greenish blue. Its name is derived from the Paraiba State in Brazil, where it was first discovered. Now a days it is also mined in Mozambique, Madagascar and Nigeria. What  makes this gem so different to other Tourmalines, is the presence of copper and, to a lesser extent, manganese. The copper within the gem is what makes it appear to glow and this almost neon effect is truly a delight to see. For Paraiba Tourmaline, color is more important than clarity. Blue color holds more value than green ones.
