Paraiba Tourmaline – first discovered in 1989 by Heitor Dimas Barbosa near the village of São José da Batalha in Paraíba State, northeastern Brazil – immediately created a buzz in the market, because of its vibrant, almost unearthly colours and rarity. For any gemstone connoisseur, gemologist and gemstones lovers, the term ‘Paraiba’ is magical inspiration and epitomises pure beauty, referring to the incredibly vivid coloured copper-and manganese bearing elbaite tourmalines, which have mesmerized the trade and public alike since their discovery end of the 1980s in the state of Paraiba in Brazil. 0Up to today, this area has produced some of the finest tourmalines the world has ever seen with a range of vivid blue to green color, known in the trade also as ‘electric blue’ , ‘neon blue’, ‘electric green’ or ‘ neon green’. Until today, it is one of the most sought-after gemstones the world over and highly prized in finest qualities.           Information provided by SSEF
