Tourmaline is a part of the complex borosilicate mineral family. When certain members of that family contain copper, manganese and a trace amount of gold, a cuprian or Paraiba tourmaline results. Beyond being colorful, cuprian tourmaline appear to glow with a neon quality, even before it’s been cut and polished. This seemingly electric luminosity is an interaction of manganese and copper. For its beauty and rarity, cuprian tourmaline is one of the most valuable gemstones in the market. This extraordinary neon green cuprian tourmaline from Mozambique is considered the finest example in the world.
