An absolutely gorgeous spring green natural tourmaline. At 5.5mm, it's perfectly sized for a pendant or a ring.

One of the most versatile of gemstones, tourmaline is available in every color, from colorless to black. You can find every tone from pastel to dark, and even with one or more colors appearing in the same stone. It truly is a wondrous and fascinating stone.

Known for centuries, tourmaline first gained popularity when the Dutch began to import it in the early 17th century from Sri Lanka. They gave the gem a Sinhalese name, Turamali, which is believed to mean stone with mixed colors.

Photos have been greatly enlarged to show detail. Please see the size listed above for the actual measurements.

The very facets that create the beautiful sparkle in a gemstone may create optical illusions, white or dark/black spots and areas, or uneven coloring when a gemstone is photographed. The photos are greatly enlarged, equivalent to viewing the stone under high magnification. There may be flaws visible in the enlarged photos that aren't visible to the naked eye.
