A beautiful Rare Pink Tourmaline.
Dimension 5x4.2x2.5 mm.
Tourmalines are gems with an incomparable variety of colors. The reason, according to an old Egyptian legend, is that the tourmaline, on its long journey up from the center of the Earth, passed over a rainbow. In doing so, it assumed all the colors of the rainbow. And that is why it is still referred to as the 'gemstone of the rainbow' today. Mozambique tourmaline is widely used in jewelry since it has a â€˜neonâ€™ and â€˜electricâ€™ glow. It is the small amounts of copper found in each gemstoneâ€™s chemical composition that had contributed to the glow. Mozambique tourmaline is also referred to as Cupiran tourmaline. Besides Mozambique, Mozambique tourmaline is a gemstone that is also found in copper rich areas like Brazil and Nigeria. The history of Mozambique tourmaline is an interesting one, which is mainly related to the fortunes of a man named, Moussa Konate.
