Victoria (Verified owner) – 2020-10-23 I chose this crystal intuitively, without even really knowing about its properties. I can’t say anything about the mystical meanings of tourmaline, but the fact that it extinguishes any pain almost instantly is 100% true. Some time ago I had to experience it myself. I was pleasantly surprised by these properties. It seemed to me that this was impossible. Thank you)) Evaluation 5 of 5

No gemstone has such a variety of colors as tourmaline. And although it has been known in the Mediterranean since ancient times, tourmaline was brought to Europe from Ceylon by the Dutch in 1703. They called it the Sinhalese word “tourmali”. Along with plain ones, polychrome tourmalines are often found. In one crystal of such tourmaline, areas of different colors or shades can be distinguished. Among collectors, light-colored tourmaline crystals with a black head are called the Moor’s head, and those with a red head are called the Turk’s head. Often the color distribution is zonal. In Brazil, for example, tourmalines are found with a red core, first bordered by light green, and then dark green and green zones. South African tourmalines have a green core surrounded by a red outer zone. Collectors call tourmalines with a red core and a green “rind” watermelon. There is probably no other such colorful stone in nature. There are many color options for tourmaline: in addition to all the colors of the rainbow, it can be black, colorless, plain and polychrome (multicolor). Polychrome crystal has different colors at the poles and can be colored in circles.


  • rubellite – red, ruby ​​red is especially valued;
  • verdelite – green, emerald green is especially valued;
  • dravite – brown: from yellowish-brown to dark brown;
  • indigolite – blue and light blue;
  • achroite – colorless, rare;
  • sibirite – crimson, lilac-red, red-violet;
  • sherl – black;
  • watermelon tourmaline – with a red core and a green border.

Tourmaline cat’s eye comes in different colors, but only the green and pink varieties have a clearly visible streak of light. Its appearance is due to inclusions of fibrous minerals. Some tourmalines slightly change color when exposed to artificial light.


When a crystal is heated or squeezed or rubbed, it creates an electrical charge. In this case, one end of the crystal is charged positively, and the other – negatively. Such an electrified crystal attracts dust particles and small pieces of paper (pyro- and piezoelectricity).

The Dutch sailors and merchants who first brought this mineral to Europe knew and used this effect. They cleaned their meerschaum pipes with heated tourmaline crystals, and therefore called this stone “aschenzier” – drawing out ash.

Selling jewelry with tourmaline

How to distinguish natural tourmaline from a fake

Tourmaline is usually imitated using glass of different colors and various types of synthetic garnets, as well as other materials that are similar in their external characteristics.

You can distinguish a natural stone from glass by holding a sample in your hands: the glass will quickly heat up, and real tourmaline will remain cold longer.

An easy way to spot a fake. All natural tourmalines have a pronounced property – the ability to become electrified. This is an excellent diagnostic method: rub the stone on natural woolen fabric, and then bring it, for example, to finely cut pieces of paper – they should be attracted.

Paraiba tourmaline has a neon blue glow; the stone sparkles even at dusk. And if you expose a cut stone to the sun’s rays, it begins to “burn” so that it does not provide shade. However, it is very rare and expensive, so it is unlikely that you will find jewelry with it.
