About Paraíba Tourmaline:

Discovered in the late 1980s, Paraíba tourmaline’s vivid blues and greens have intrigued gem lovers around the world. Its unique blue coloring instantly sets it apart from other varieties of tourmaline due to its copper content. Although copper colors other gems, such as turquoise, it’s not a coloring agent in any other tourmaline. Being the most rare tourmaline, paraíba is highly valued. Paraíba tourmalines are found in Brazil’s Paraíba region, as well as in Mozambique and Nigeria.

About Padparadscha Sapphire:

The term “padparadscha” is derived from the Sinhalese word for aquatic lotus blossom, which has a strikingly beautiful unusual salmon color.  Padparadscha sapphires are mainly found in Sri Lanka, as well as Madagascar and Tanzania, and are among the rarest gems.  Nothing compares to their unique mix of pink and orange!
