Facetted Tourmaline

These stones shown here are all facetted tourmaline...

Look at how many colours this mineral can come in.. from pink to red, green to dark green! It covers nearly every colour in the spectrum!

The word tourmaline has two etymologies, both from the Sinhalese word turamali, meaning "stone attracting ash" (a reference to its pyroelectric properties) or according to other sources "mixed gemstones".
