Tourmaline is a very attractive gem that occurs in nearly every color.

Its name is derived from the word toramalli, which means "mixed gems" in Sinhalese, one of the languages spoken in Sri Lanka.

In 1554, Spanish conquistador Francisco Spinoza discovered green tourmaline crystals during a Brazilian expedition, which he mistook for emerald.  It wasn't until the 1800s that mineralogists finally identified tourmaline as its own species.

Fun Fact:  Tourmaline is both pyroelectric and piezoelectric, meaning it is a gem that becomes electrically charged when heated or squeezed!

Tourmaline is an October birthstone and is the 8th wedding anniversary gemstone.
