Tourmaline is the gem of the month of October, associated with open-minded people with artistic concerns.


Tourmaline is one of the most popular gems thanks to the fact that it can acquire practically any color in nature, from almost absolute transparency to opaque black, even reaching very evocative color mixtures.

Its name comes from the Cigalese "Touramalli", which means "Stone of mixed colors", this explosion of colors has caused it to be linked to people with open character or artistic concerns.

Do you think Tourmaline could be your gemstone?

"This is the part that attracts me the most: seeing a mineral with all this explosion of colors... Tourmaline has the ability to captivate you!"

The color versatility of tourmaline has been the source of many confusions with other precious stones. We have the example of the Spanish conquerors thinking they had found emeralds in Brazil in the 16th century or the case of the famous "Ruby of Caesar" from the Russian imperial crown.

However, tourmalines have very distinctive characteristics, the main one being their greater clarity, which helps to reflect light and produces the effect of changing color depending on how you are looking at it, with a captivating and very suggestive variability.
It is the stone of the month of October and is believed to grant confidence and courage - in blue or dark tones - or love and gentleness - in lighter and pink tones. Could it be your special gem?

Jewelry care

It is a gemstone that is considered to be of a hardness suitable for everyday use (7/7.5 on the Moh's scale), although high temperatures can damage it. It can withstand chemicals well, but from Roosik & Co we recommend the use of warm water, soap and a soft brush for cleaning.
