Tourmaline is a complex borosilicate mineral family. When certain members of that family add copper, manganese and a trace amount of gold to their composition, a cuprian or Paraiba tourmaline results.
Cuprian (elbaite) Tourmaline is extremely rare and collectable. It comes in many different colours , but most commonly tones of blues and greens. There are currently no new mines to date so the collectability of these 'glowing' gemstones continues to rise.
Tourmaline is the birthstone of October .
It is also associated with an 8 yr Wedding Anniversary
