*** The name Tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese (Sri Lanka) word "tura mali" which translates as the stone of mixed colors. Tourmaline is available in a wide variety of colors from black to bluish-black, dark brown, yellow, medium brown, blue to neon blue, lime to dark forest green, red and reddish purple, pink, and colourless.

Bi-colored and multicoloured tourmalines may be green at one end and pink at the other. Watermelon Tourmalines are green on the outside and pink on the inside. Some stones are dichroic meaning they appear to change color when viewed from different angles.

The most expensive tourmalines are the blue Indicolite, green Verdelite and pink Rubellite.

Cat's Eye Tourmaline exhibits a cat's eye effect similar to what is commonly seen in tiger's eye. Chrome Tourmaline is colored by chromium resulting in a beautiful green stone that is often confused with Emerald or the Tsavorite Garnet. Indicolite is a dark blueish black stone. The Paraiba Tourmaline is a bright neon-blue and Rubellite is a deep reddish purple stone.

Schorl is the name given to Black Tourmalines which are the most commonly found tourmalines.
