About the tourmaline

Tourmaline is derived from the ancient Sinhalese word Turmali, meaning “mixed gem.” The composition of tourmaline is complex and the colors are complex and varied.

In addition to its colorful colors, the most attractive part of the tourmaline is its versatility. When we hold tourmaline and rotate against the light at different angles, the color and depth of the tourmaline change sits with the angle of view. This is due to the tourmaline has a strong multi-color, which also gives tourmaline a mysterious color. The piezoelectric and thermoelectric effects of tourmaline When tourmaline is heated or applied, or friction with silk or wool, will cause electrode effects at both ends of the column-like tourmaline, positive electricity at one end and negative electricity at the other, which will attract some dust or small confetti, the magic force is the piezoelectric effect of tourmaline and the thermoelectric effect, It is also the origin of the name “Electric Stone”. There was an interesting story: legend has it that in 1703, on a warm summer’s day in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, several children were playing with stones brought back by Dutch navigators. Suddenly, a child found the stones near the dust and grass and debris sucked in. The children were so surprised that they asked their parents to look at them and found that the stone could attract or reject light objects such as dust and grass scraps. Since then, the Dutch have called it “greystone” and used to clean up soot from the pipes.

The interior of the tourmaline crystal will contain a wealth of vapor fluid wrap, and often is directional distribution, forming a tubular package, dense tubular wrap experience makes the processing into an arc-shaped or ball-shaped tourmaline appearcat cat-eye effect – in the tourmaline surface appears a clear light belt, and with the different viewing angle, the light belt also changes.
