Tourmaline – The Colorful Gemstone in the world

Jewelry

The name ‘Tourmaline’ derives from the Sinhalese “thuramali” or “thoramalli” and means something like “colored gem” or “Stone with mixed colors”. The tourmaline is very popular due to its impressive chandelier and its color intensity.

Tourmaline is found in more than 100 different colors – he is the colorful gemstone at all, even black and colorless count in the spectrum into. There are also two – and multicolored tourmalines. The most famous example is probably the watermelon tourmaline, which reflects the characteristic color of the melon flesh inside, surrounded by the green color of the watermelon shell.

A cross-section of tourmalines is extremely interesting, because here not only that partly multi colored spectrum of colors, but also the diverse arrangement becomes apparent. The exhibition “Turamali”, which most recently on the OUR SITE in Stuttgart was to see shows the tourmalines especially in cross section; the gems this resemble abstract artworks.

Due to its variety of colors, the tourmaline is often confused with other gems and was consequently nicknamed “Chameleon gem”. You can for example easily confuse the Santa pink tourmaline with an emerald. Confusion include Amethyst, Andalusite, Chrysoberyl, citrine, Garnet abrasive, Hiddenit, Peridot, Ruby and smoky quartz with the gems possible.

By the way, the Championship trophy of the Fußball – Bundesliga is occupied with 21 tourmalines, and also the Cup is filled with some tourmalines.
