Just Who or What is Tourmaline?
Tourmaline is a very versatile gemstone. Much like Hollywood’s Norma Jeane to Marilyn Monroe stardom. The name Tourmaline tells it all. It means “mixed stone.” This ring is no different. It is a Hollywood mix at an affordable price. A Norma Jeane Tourmaline Style Ring. What makes Tourmaline a mixed gemstone?
There are several reasons why Tourmaline is considered “mixed.” Tourmaline has a complex molecular structure. Its chemistry has oddly been described by John Ruskin. John Ruskin was a Famous 19th century art critic and person of wide-ranging knowledge. He says its “more like a doctor’s prescription than the making of a reputable mineral.” Many tourmaline crystals exhibit polarity. This means the color, electrical properties, and the crystal forms are different at opposite ends of the crystal. Additionally, when heated or rubbed, it acquires an electric charge. This electrical charge attracts small objects. Small objects such as dust and other lightweight objects. This property is known as “pyroelectricity,” a legitimate magical property!
Furthermore, Tourmaline is used in some electrical devices to produce pressure gauges. For example, PCB Piezotronics offers a Tourmaline Pressure Bar. It is “designed for reflected shock wave pressure measurement.” If that does not just wow you!
Norma Jeane vs. Tourmaline: Is it a Popularity Contest?
No contest at all. As beautiful, witty, and iconic as Norma Jeane is, Tourmaline is known to be just as beautiful and iconic. Maybe not as witty though. Previously mistaken, Tourmaline, has been around since the late 1600’s! Its first known discovery being off the coast of Italy. Originally discoverers mistook Tourmaline to be Emeralds and Rubies. It would be almost another 200 years before scientists realized the mineral properties differed. Tourmaline is in a class of its own! With its own mineral properties.
Even Tourmaline’s color comes in a variety of beauty. From a fiery red to a bubblegum pink. Perhaps you prefer a sunflower yellow or possibly an oceanic blue. Maybe, color is not what you are looking for. You just want the glamour. Tourmaline even comes in a colorless option. Whatever color suits you, I promise, Tourmaline has the perfect hue! Thus, making Tourmaline one of the most popular gemstones out there. Where there’s a demand, there will be a supply! Additionally, this gemstone is capable of being in a small or large stone setting.
Small Tourmaline gemstones set off a pair of earrings with just enough glitz and glitter. Or make a bold statement with a HUGE 8.38 cttw ring surrounded in white diamonds.
