Tourmaline is a truly unique and fascinating gemstone. Tourmaline is a fairly hard stone; it measures 7 to 7.5 hardness on the Moh’s scale. It can come in almost all of the different colours of the rainbow, including green, blue, pink, red, black, orange, and brown, plus many shades and combinations of the various colours. Green tourmaline with pink inside is called watermelon tourmaline. Tourmaline may have one colour on one side of the mineral and another colour on the other side. Gemstones cut with two or three colours of tourmaline are more rare and are called bicolour or tricolour stones.
Tourmaline is believed by some to make one openhearted and giving, some believe it can make one calm, centered, and able to communicate more effectively.
Green amethyst is amethyst where the amethyst mineral has a higher than normal iron content within the stone. This iron content causes some of the stones to be green when found, although this is rare. More often, the natural amethyst is heat treated to produce the green color. Only certain amethyst stones from mines with a higher iron mineral content in the amethyst will produce the green color change.
Some believe that amethyst has calming and protective qualities and that wearing amethyst will increase inspiration and intuition.
