Introduction about loose tourmaline gems -Tourmaline is one the stones which has outstanding color range like green, pink, blue, black and olive, this is the one of reason people get confuse about its color. Etymology behind the word “Tourmaline” reflects one of its properties; it comes from word “Tura Mali” which is Sri Lankan word that stands for “Mix color stones”. In beginning era, this stone was mistaken by “Emerald” from 1500s to 1800s. After 1800s scientists tested ingredients, crystal structure and chemical composition of this gem and declared it as a distinct mineral species. Crystal structure of tourmaline quite matches to different colors and only difference of a few physical and chemical properties.

How to choose best quality tourmaline faceted and cabochons gemstones?

Transparency, color, size, shape and quality are factors to know to pick a best tourmaline piece.

Transparency – Tourmaline is transparent to translucent stone. Top quality pieces come with zero percent opacity with good saturation of color. If a stone is less transparent with good saturation of color then price will not be high for that piece so TRANSPARENCY is the most important factor.

Color – We will divide it into two sections – one is different color tourmaline and other one is color saturation of tourmaline. This stone comes in wide and amazing range of colors like candies ;) and price for every color is different. Paraiba, blue (Indigolite), pink, green and then others (Black, yellow, olive etc.) come in order based on value. “Perfect color saturation” is very important. Sometimes buyer think the more darker is more valuable but it is not, if any stone is very dark and giving blackish tone then it will be least valued.


Shape and Size – Oval, Round, cushion, long baguette and triangular cut are popular shapes in Tourmaline. We have been cutting all small 2mm round faceted or cabochon to 12mm and up sizes in different and sizes in our factory. Micro sizes are very famous in pink and green color and widely used in jewelry, sometimes it is used to replace pink sapphire to minimize the total cost of jewelry piece. Over 5 carats sizes are high in price because big size raw material is not easily available.

All stones are cut to save weight as well as make them look beautiful, to find the perfect balance.
