      First discovered in the late 1980s in the Brazilian state of Paraíba from which the stone is named, Paraíba tourmaline is arguably the most valuable, and perhaps the most popular, of all tourmaline gem varieties. Though Africa also produces Paraíba tourmalines nowadays, Brazil remains home to the most sought-after Paraíba in the world. However, the supply has been dwindling and a Paraíba over 3 carats like this one offered here is considered an extremely rare occurrence.
