Indicolite, a stunning and sought-after gem

October 20, 2016

True blue tourmaline is arguably the rarest colour variety of the tourmaline gemstone family and is part of the mineral species known as Elbaite. Known in the trade as 'Indicolite', it is highly sought-after, with its name derived from the Latin word for the “indicum plant”.

We currently have a stunning 6.67ct cushion cut Indicolite tourmaline with predominantly blue hues with a hint of green which hails from Brazil. The gem has exceptional clarity and would make a truly spectacular cocktail ring or alternative engagement ring. It displays distinct pleochroism,which is a gemmological term meaning that a gemstone or crystal can display more than one colour when viewed from multiple directions. We are planning to incorporate this unique treasure into a new bespoke ring design.
