Green Tourmaline

Green Tourmaline

Submitted by • June 20, 2013

If you plan on buying green tourmaline gemstone jewellery, then there are a couple of confusing facts that you need to take note of. Green tourmalines are named either Brazilian or African, however this does not automatically mean that it has been mined there. Instead it refers to the colour. It used to be the case that bottle-green tourmalines only came from Brazil and blue-green tourmalines came from Africa. This is no longer the case, however they are still referred to as Brazilian or African, even if this is not where they were mined. Brazilian tourmalines are also called Verdelite.
