    • Care for Tourmaline Jewelry

      To minimize scratching and wear, store each piece of fine jewelry separately in a soft cloth or padded container. Exposure to high heat is not recommended. Strong heat may alter color and sudden temperature changes may cause fracturing. Tourmaline jewelry is best cleaned with warm, sudsy water and a tightly woven microfiber or other soft cloth.

    • Tourmaline Mineral Info

      Rumored to be born from the rare energy of the rainbow, tourmaline’s many shades ripple with imaginative play, joyful generosity, and attracting perfect prosperity. Created from silicate minerals, these precious stones can be found in a range of colors. One of the most well known is the midnight hued stone of the black tourmaline, but for those craving a splash of color, you can find tourmaline crystals in brighter shades of pink, green, purple, and even medley like rainbow shades or the color of watermelon. “Parti-colored” tourmalines exhibit two or more colors in a single gem. “Bicolor” tourmaline displays two distinct color zones. Paraíba tourmaline is a trade term for vividly saturated green to blue or violet copper-bearing elbaite tourmaline. Rubellite refers to pink to red elbaite tourmaline. Indicolite refers to the blue variety. Chrome tourmaline is a trade term for vibrant green tourmaline. Tourmaline gemstones can be cut into many shapes and sizes, often as faceted gems, cabochons, polished crystal slices or mineral specimens. Cutters often fashion tourmalines as long rectangles. Tourmaline is generally stable to light and isn’t affected by exposure to chemicals, but heat can damage a tourmaline. High heat can alter the color, and sudden temperature change (thermal shock) can cause fracturing. Some tourmalines might have been treated to improve their color. The two most important tourmaline treatments are heating and irradiation.
