The name 'Tourmaline' is derived from Sinhalese "turamali", which translates as "stone of mixed colors", referring to the unique spectrum of colors exhibited by this remarkable gemstone, which is second to none in the realm of precious colored stones. Indeed, tourmaline is one of the most versatile of gemstones, readily available in every color, from colorless to black.
Yellow golden tourmaline is one of the most popular tourmaline colors. Often times, tourmaline gemstones will show more than one color in a single specimen, depending on the angle from which it is viewed; this is known as pleochroism in the world of gemstones.

Many beautiful gems on the site. Love that you are actually shipped the gem that is shown in the photos. Also cool that they give a write up of each gem detailing hardness, characteristics, and best uses for mounting. Great site! Looking forward to seeing these gems in person.
