I’ve said it before, but tourmaline is so popular right now; the range of colours and colour mixes is unparalleled in any other gemstone. Here is a selection of some of the tourmalines I have in stock – there are many more on the website and I will be adding more over the next few days. Any one of these stones are unique and would make an incredible statement in any piece of jewellery. There’s a few inclusions – less in the bi-colour rubellite, which is higher grade material, but I think if you love tourmaline, then you have to love the inclusions too, because clean material is so scarce and therefore so expensive. If you want to know why the price of tourmaline is sky-rocketing, I am told that it is currently very desirable in China and they are buying it up by the 1000s of carats!
