(More than 2-carat sized Blue Tourmaline)
Mint & Blue Tourmaline
Though tourmaline occurs in virtually every color, blue is in fact the rarest tourmaline color. The blue tourmaline that has attracted the most attention is the rare paraiba variety that was first discovered in Brazil in 1989, and then later in Nigeria and Mozambique. These gems, colored by copper, have an unusual neon-like quality that is coveted by collectors.
But! All blue tourmalines are rare, even the non-copper bearing ones. The purer blue tourmalines are generally smaller in sizes, often under 1-carat. Hence, we must say that these blue tourmalines of (1.51ct and 2.43ct) are definitely difficult to come by these days.
Book an appointment with us and chat with our gemologist, Kengo Kajita to learn more about these precious gems!
