Paraiba Tourmaline

First discovered in Brazil, Paraiba Tourmaline can now be found in only two other localities in the world: Nigeria and Mozambique. Paraiba Tourmaline is defined by GIA and Gubelin Labs by its trace elements of copper, the key ingredient to the stone’s famous neon-blue color. Although many of the Brazilian deposits have been all but exhausted, the price and demand for this rare collectible gemstone continue to rise.

Paraiba Tourmaline from the Mozambique locality is particularly unique for its color and size. Mozambique Gems LDA is celebrated for producing Paraiba with the brilliant color found in the original Brazilian discoveries while possessing even better clarity and size. Well-established retail names such as Harry Winston and new emerging jewelers alike are drawn to this stone’s enchanting color.
