We LOVE coloured gems so it is only natural that when we make a new item for the window that we use something unique and eye catching.

Over the years I have found that the most frequent queries have been when we have had a tourmaline in the window.  Tourmaline is a natural gem which typically grows in long slender crystals. As it grows it is possible for the crystal to change colours with the top section different to the base. It is also possible for the outside of the crystal to be differ to the centre of the crystal meaning there are some very unique stones available. Also to note cats eyes are also possible in this gem.

Tourmaline comes in every colour of the rainbow and being a hardness of 7-7.5 on the MOHs scale it is durable enough for everyday wear.

Though tourmaline is found in many countries Brazil is the predominate  source for this fun gem. Check out some of our wonderful tourmaline stock.
