History and Uses
Tourmaline has been known since ancient times. A statue with the likeness of Alexander the Great has been found. It was believed to be carved in India in the 2nd or 3rd century BC. This is the only gemstone which has such a wide variety of colours including red, pink, green, black, blue, violet, yellow and brown. Also, this amazing crystal is pyroelectric and piezoelectric. Due to this, Dutch traders would rub them and use them to pull the ashes from their meerschaum pipes, hence their name aschentrekkers or ash pullers.
Black Tourmaline is a complex borosilicate with a hardness of 7 to 7.5. Its crystal pattern is hexagonal (trigonal) with prismatic crystals and striations running parallel to the main axis. The major areas that Tourmaline is found include Brazil, USA, Africa, Madagascar, Sri Lanka and Russia.
