15ct Natural Paraiba Tourmaline

A Portuguese cut greenish-blue 15ct Paraiba tourmaline with brilliant clarity and a neon color.

Setting a paraiba gem is not easy.

The Green blue may indicate how this stone wants to be set. Many paraiba tourmalines are set awkwardly, forcing shine onto their subtle beauty, or accenting with un-organic gemstone pairings.

Mining Paraiba stones is difficult. They are mined mostly by hand with manual tools like wedges and sledge hammers. The difficulty mining makes paraiba tourmalines invariably very expensive.

Paraiba tourmalines in the rough are not vivid until they are cut. When they are cut, they appear to glow intensely even where there is little or no light. Photos

I show photos in different lighting situations, so that you may visualise closer to what the gem looks like in real life. This seemingly ‘glowing’ or ‘neon’ quality matters due to the nature of paraiba tourmalines.

Paraiba tourmalines first became popular because of its spirited colour. The elements responsible for the varied shades and beautiful colouring of the paraiba variety are attributed to copper, iron and manganese. Scientists have found that the fair amount of copper gives the paraiba tourmaline its glowing color.

It is quite astonishing when you pass by this gem on the table, how it glows in the dark!

While it is true that many gems are less common than diamonds, it seems truer to say paraiba tourmalines are simply coveted.

At this high carat size, this is perhaps, better than rare.

Pending GIA certification.
