The main origins of Paraiba are Brazil, Mozambique and Nigeria, and the most traditional origin is Brazil. Because of its small origin and output, its value is constantly rising, and it is a frequent visitor to gem collectors and auctioneers. Under the premise of high prices and scarce production, many cutters want to retain the maximum weight of the gemstones and leave the inclusions together. Therefore, the vast majority of Paraiba has low clarity, but you must also select carefully. , it is best not to buy quality products with black inclusions.

Paraiba has a very unique dreamy blue-green color. Its color-causing elements are copper (Cu) and manganese (Mn). Strictly speaking, a tourmaline without copper elements cannot be called Paraiba, so When buying Paraiba, it is best to come with a certificate to ensure that the Paraiba you purchase is rich in copper. There are many colors in Paraiba, ranging from sky blue to lime green. When choosing a color, the blue color in the mainstream market will have a slightly higher value than the green color, and the highest value is neon blue (NEON BLUE). , but the most important thing is to find the color you like!
