This rare variety of copper-bearing elbaite tourmaline is famous for its vivid neon blue and bluish green colours. Originally discovered in Brazil in 1989 in the state of Paraiba, it is now also mined in Mozambique and Nigeria. Often compared to the ocean, the most sought after neons are sometimes likened to ‘Windex Blue’. Paraiba is a rare type of tourmaline whose popularity has soared in recent years.

Gembridge Members source their gem-quality stones from countries all over the world, including many famous regions and mines. While origin is not an indicator of quality, it does provide context for buyers.

Origins listed on Gembridge may be stated as an opinion on a laboratory report or described by the Seller familiar with the stone’s provenance.

Gemstones come in many different forms. On Gembridge, we describe each by its shape in simple terms – round, square, cushion etc. Where relevant, we may also list the style of cutting, such as brilliant, step etc.

Although untreated gems are highly prized, there are many universally accepted treatments that enhance a gemstone’s beauty, including heating (for colour), and oiling (for clarity). On Gembridge, all treatments must be fully disclosed, so you know exactly what kind of gemstone you are purchasing.
