  • Approximate beads per strand: 65
  • What is it: Tourmaline is part of a large group of boron silicate minerals with a wide range of colors. It has a Mohs hardness of 7 to 7.5.
  • History: In the 1500s, a Spanish conquistador of Brazil, washed the dirt from a green tourmaline crystal and confused the gemstone with an emerald. The confusion with emeralds and tourmaline continued until scientists recognized tourmaline as aits own mineral species in the 1800s. Its name comes from the word toramalli, which means “mixed gems” in Sinhalese (a language of Sri Lanka).  
  • Metaphysical Properties: Tourmaline is believed to promote inspiration,happiness, and self-confidence among those who wear it. It's also used to balance opposite energies, as it's considered to be a spiritual bridge.
  • Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead
