The name of tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese (language of Sri Lanka) “Thuramali”. This word is well chosen to designate the stone since it means “the stone of a thousand colors”. Indeed, tourmaline is a translucent stone ranging from pale pink to black through cyan blue.
Highly appreciated and sought after, tourmaline has been confused with other precious gems since the sixteenth century. At that time, the conquistadors of Spain discovered green tourmaline in Brazil and mistook it for an emerald. In the nineteenth century, it is red tourmalines belonging to the jewels of the imperial crown of England that were identified as rubies. For example, Timur ruby, a 352-carat red tourmaline that was identified as a ruby until 1851.
Birthstone of October, tourmaline is also traditionally offered on the occasion of the 8th and 52nd wedding anniversary.
