Paraiba Tourmaline is an exclusive neon blue to blue-green colored gem variety of the Tourmaline family. It is the only tourmaline that owes its extraordinary vivid hue and intense glow from the copper element. Internal manganese particles create rainbow effects inside the Paraiba Tourmaline that makes this gemstone highly sought after. This gemstone was discovered in the 1980s in the Paraiba Hills of Brazil and got immensely popular in lesser time because of its unmatchable beauty and high rarity. This gemstone is always appreciated by the jewelry lovers and gem collectors. The exclusiveness of this legendary find makes these rare gemstones real treasures.
