    Named after the Brazilian state of Paraiba in which the gemstone was first unearthed in the late 1980s, Paraiba tourmaline enchants with an electric colour known as ‘swimming pool blue’. Though Africa also produces the same variety of tourmaline nowadays, Brazil is hailed as the most prominent and revered origin of the world’s best Paraiba. The majority Paraiba tourmalines are heated for its colour, this current one on offer is an extremely rare specimen from Brazil with a natural vibrant greenish blue colour, a true gem for the discerning collector.
