Green Tourmaline


The color of growth and fertility, green is naturally linked to hope...

... strength, and physical health. Vivid Green Tourmaline, ranging from pure leek-green to more complex shades touched with yellow, blue or brown, makes the most of green’s positive associations. Legend tells of Tourmaline’s power to attract friends and lovers, protect the wearer against bad decisions, and shield its owner from danger. Perhaps because green represents a balance between blue and yellow, Green Tourmaline is thought to promote balance for those who wear it. One of the more popular stones among male buyers, Green Tourmaline will also grace the most feminine jewelry designs. Especially since green is commonly affiliated with eco-friendly products, we see green gems such as Green Tourmaline being used by designers and sought after by fashion-forward consumers. Its rich olive green hue provides a stunning year-round fashion accessory. Tourmaline is a gem often given to those born in October as well as those born under the sign of Capricorn. It is also the celebratory gem for the 8th wedding anniversary. Our Green Tourmaline is mined in East Africa; however Brazil, Afghanistan, Myanmar, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, China and the United States are other major sources for this luscious gemstone.
