15ct Natural Paraiba Tourmaline

0%

    15ct paraiba tourmaline with brilliant clarity.

    This Portuguese cut paraiba is greenish-blue with excellent fire. A high quality paraiba tourmaline must fulfil color and lustre criteria, but it is rare to find a perfect stone.

    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.

    Because of its fire, the color of this paraiba is able to come through in daylight and very importantly, display its neon-like quality when light varies, even up to very low light.

    If you consider the photos, observe how the color of the paraiba takes on a neon glow when the hand slightly folds over, and then compare to how the color lightens when the hand is fully outstretched. Light play affects the paraiba tourmaline in every way.

    You can observe that in the dark, the stone appears to glow. The ‘glowing’ paraiba in the very dark photo is also very real!

    Two videos are necessary to showcase the light-on-color phenomenon of this gem, one in white light, and one in very low light.

    Photos are minimally edited for brightness calibration. Daylight / garden photos are not edited.

    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.
