Chrome Tourmaline


Mother Nature offers an unending variety of greens...

Mother Nature offers an unending variety of greens – from the lushness of summer grass to the softness of sage to the blue-green of the ocean, the psychedelic green of a jungle frog, or the yellow-green of an olive, whatever you’re fancy there is a green for you. Just as nature provides a vast array of green, it also supplies a considerable selection of Tourmaline. According to an ancient Egyptian legend, on its long journey from the center of the Earth, Tourmaline passed over a rainbow. By doing so, it absorbed all the colors the rainbow offered, which is why it is called the “gemstone of the rainbow” still today. Chrome Tourmaline is a rare variety of Tourmaline, so named for its traces of chrome. Its beauty rivals that of fine Emeralds and offers designers and shoppers a verdant green to grace jewelry and fashion. Mined in Tanzania and cut specifically for us, our Chrome Tourmaline is untreated. In addition to calibrated sizes, we also offer a distinctive selection of Chrome Tourmaline in our Black Box Gemstone® collection. View these one-of-a-kind gemstones online at stuller.com.
