The Green Tourmaline

We use the term "tourmaline" followed by its color, so the verdelite becomes a "green tourmaline".
Verdelite [green / lithium]: both Latin and Greek meaning green stone. This Tourmaline goes through all shades of green with its shades of yellow and brown.
Like all natural stones, tourmalines are crystals with small details called "inclusions". These inclusions appear in the structure of the stone during its formation. As such, they should not be seen as faults but rather as a seal affixed by nature, witness to the long process of stone formation.
The purity of a stone depends on the size, quantity and arrangement of its inclusions. A very good quality tourmaline will have tiny inclusions invisible to the naked eye.
The higher the degree of purity, the higher the value of tourmaline.

A little history...

The word “tourmaline” comes from the Sinhalese “thuramali”, which means “stone with mixed colors” and which indicated all the stones whose name we did not know especially. What a beautiful name for a stone arriving on Earth crossing a rainbow, imbued with all its colors, as the Egyptians believed.


The most beautiful specimens of gem quality come from Brazilian deposits, Madagascar, East Africa (Tanzania) and South (Namibia, Malawi, Mozambique ...), the Russian Urals and the USA (Maine ).
