Tourmaline-

Color: Multicolors

Meaning: Healing

Tourmaline represents love and friendship, and is said to render them firm and long-lasting

Tourmaline is a semi-precious stone with the greatest range of colors found in nature. Bi-color and multi-color crystals are common. They can be pink at one end and green at the other; this type is called watermelon tourmaline. Along with the colors comes a range of prices. Because no two tourmalines look alike, they were mistaken for other gems until the 1800’s when they were reclassified as a distinct mineral species. Before that tourmalines had been confused for sapphires, emeralds, rubies, and other gems. It is now believed that the rubies in both the Russian & British Crown Jewels are now believed to be red tourmalines, also known as rubellite. The name comes from the word ‘thoramalli’ which is applied to a group of gemstones found in the southern parts of the Indian Subcontinent. Gem and specimen tourmaline are mined chiefly in Brazil and Africa, gemstones come from Sri Lanka and India, but they are also found in several other place around the world. Tourmaline is renowned for its three-sided prisms; no other common mineral has three sides.

It is also a present for the 8th wedding anniversary.
