An Introduction to Loose Tourmaline Gems

Tourmaline is one of the stones which have an outstanding color range like green, pink, blue, black, and olive and this is the reason people get confused about its color. The etymology behind the word “Tourmaline” reflects one of its properties. It comes from the word “Tura Mali” which is a Sri Lankan word that stands for “Mix Color Stones”. In the beginning, this stone was indeed mistaken for the “Emerald” from the 1500s to 1800s. After the 1800s scientists tested the ingredients, crystal structure, and chemical composition of this gem and declared it as a distinct mineral species. The crystal structure of Tourmaline matches different colors and has only the difference of a few physical and chemical properties.

We import Multi Tourmaline directly from where they are mined chiefly and glaze them for our clients at our own manufacturing units which are situated in Thailand and India. Our expert craftsmen use advanced tools to shape the gemstone and make it beautiful.

Paraiba Tourmaline is quite a rare stone and demand is so high,  that it is a high-priced stone and only a very few companies do stock it. Mozambique, Brazil, Nigeria, and some other countries are known for the availability of raw materials of this stone. It was first discovered in Nigeria then Brazil and Mozambique. Mozambican Paraiba Tourmaline is bluer and cleaner.

How do you choose the best quality of Tourmaline Faceted and Cabochons Gemstones?

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


Tourmaline is a transparent to translucent stone. Top-quality pieces come with 0% opacity with good saturation of color. If a stone is less transparent with good saturation of color then the price will not be high for that piece so TRANSPARENCY is the most important factor.

Different Colors of Tourmalines
                                       Different Colors and Size of Tourmalines


We will divide it into two sections – one is the different color of Tourmaline and the other one is the color saturation of Tourmaline. This stone comes in a wide and amazing range of colors like candies 😉 and the price for every color is different. Paraiba, Blue (Indicolite), Pink, Green, and then others (Black, yellow, olive, etc.) come in order based on value. “Perfect Color Saturation” is very important. Sometimes buyers think that darker is more valuable but it is not. If any stone is very dark and giving a 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 the jewelry piece. Over 5 carat sizes are high in price because big size raw material is not easily available.

Navneet Gems and Minerals is located in Thailand, with our headquarters here in Bangkok, and also have our manufacturing units in both India (Jaipur) and Chantaburi (Thailand), where we are producing all varieties of Tourmalines. The cabochons are being manufactured in Jaipur with our expert workers specializing in the “slicing” of the tourmaline rough, then sawing it into preforms that are then processed into cabochon or small-sized calibration stones in bulk quantities. Our Thailand factory manufacturers all cut stones from 8×6 ovals up to freeze single piece stones that range from 3-4 carats to 15-20 carat pieces.

Multi Tourmaline Freesize Stones from our Manufacturing –

Multi tourmaline is currently being stocked in more than 100 lots, each lot has an average carat weight. For example, a recent lot as attached below is of 7 carats average and is a 1500 carat lot, which has more than 200 pieces included. Most of our Multi tourmaline does not contain any “dead” stones, sorry but stones that are very dark and unsellable especially after placing them into jewelry. Very dark stones have much less value in Multi Tourmaline and that’s why we have a mix of lots in all colors. Some stones are bright and some are darker than average, but not completely light or completely dark stones. All stones are cut to save weight as well as make them look beautiful, to find the perfect balance. All stones are well repolished at our factory in Thailand that cut these beautiful Wholesale Multi tourmaline free size stones.

Wholesale Pink Tourmaline freesize single stones from our factory –

Pink tourmaline in wholesale quantities was one of the most selling products in 2013’s market and it sells well because Ruby isn’t the right stone. Pink Diamonds will always sell better than Red Diamonds and the Pink Tourmaline is usually found in all shades and all types of qualities, mostly the very nice Pinks like in the first picture below sells the most. But again it is about preferences, some customers like off shades, some like more Red in their Tourmalines, and some just like them to be perfectly “Pink” Tourmalines.
