The highly-prized Paraiba tourmaline has a unique fire and brilliance, which makes the stone seem to glow and shine from within even when there is little light. The color is often characterized as "electric" or "neon", produced by copper within the tourmaline stone, and is exclusive to this gem species. Originally only found in now-depleted mines in the Paraiba region of Brazil, fine stones are now being mined in Africa, which show the same chemical composition and amazing color.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
