Tourmaline is from the beryl family and is not a single mineral, but a group of minerals related in their physical and chemical properties, including elements such as aluminium, iron, magnesium, sodium, lithium, or potassium. Tourmaline is classified as a semi-precious stone and the gemstone comes in a wide variety of colors. Tourmaline's energy is believed to bring your energy centers into balance, opening a gateway to your highest self. They are thought to be very balancing and clearing stones.
This batch of High Quality Tourmaline has a wild range of colors that was very difficult to capture in photos. Many look black in indirect light, but with a little light many colors from pink, to green, to orange, brown, red, etc. show up. Some are more obvious than others, but know if you are snagging one from this group (A-G) that you may see colors you did not realize we're there in these photos.
This gorgeous tourmaline is completely natural and directly from the earth in Brazil, from a family owned and operated mine. It is naturally terminated and has not been cut nor polished. It is super high quality, dense and shiny.
I like to call this one the butterfly, as the muscovite on it looks like a butterfly to me. It measures about ~1.5 x 1 x .5 inches and weighs 1.6oz.
