The Paraiba Region of Brazil

Posted on October 15th, 2013 in Paraiba Tourmaline, semi-precious gem stones by admin || No Comment

Nested within the coastal region of northeastern Brazil is the lush state of Paraiba. First inhabited by Portuguese settlers in the 16th century, Paraiba has long been known for its amazing conditions for growing and producing sugar. History remained fairly static as the region continued to produce large amounts of sugarcane into the 1900s.

However, in the late 1980s, a prospector discovered a vein of semi precious gem stones, later known as Paraiba Tourmaline, and found them to be some of the highest quality of this crystal. In fact, the type of tourmaline that was first found in this region was such a fine vein of crystal that all other neon, copper-infused Tourmaline stones are labeled as Paraiba Tourmaline; regardless of the region of origin.
