Genuine Paraiba Tourmaline is one of the most sought after varieties of Tourmaline. True Paraiba Tourmaline gets its lovely Caribbean blue coloring from Copper and only comes from Paraiba, Brazil. This is the first time the Copper has even been found to cause the coloring in Tourmaline. Often people claim similar colored Tourmaline from other locations as Paraiba, but it must come from the State of Paraiba. Price should be evident in this as well as specimens / gems from Paraiba will be or should be much more expensive than their counterparts from other locations like Nigeria or Mozambique.
