Tourmaline Beads

Tourmaline is a complex crystalline silicate containing aluminum, boron and other elements, used in electronic instrumentation and, especially in its green, clear, and blue varieties, as a gemstone. Its name has been derived from the Singhalese expression "tura mali" meaning stone of mixed colours. The name refers to the unique spectrum of colors displayed by this gemstone. Tourmalines are red and green, range from blue to yellow. There are Tourmalines, which change the color from daylight to artificial light and others display chattoyance. Tourmaline is predominantly used as a jewelry stone, although it is also used in pipe cleaners (as in, the kind of pipes you smoke) due to it's piezoelectric properties which cause the soot to grasp on. It can be cut and polished a number of ways. Some tourmaline can exhibit a much-desired "cats-eye" effect when cut into a cabochon (sphere). Heat treatment of tourmaline can enhance the color. Some pink, green, and multicolored tourmalines are also carved into ornamental figures and carvings and we offer these rare pink tourmaline gems as beads at wholesale prices from India. Tourmaline is found in Africa, Brazil, Madagascar, Mexico, Myanmar, Namibia, Sri Lanka and USA. In stone body jewelry tourmaline spirals, plugs, pinchers and tunnels are very popular and are offered at wholesale prices.
