The Rainbow Gemstone.
Tourmaline is also called “rainbow gemstone” because it comes in almost every colour. One of the ancient Egyptian stories behind tourmaline’s dazzling colours is that this gemstone passed through a rainbow on its way to planet Earth.
A Supercharged Crystal.
One of the most fascinating properties of Tourmaline is that it becomes electrically charged when rubbed or warmed. When charged, tourmaline can be used to attract small objects such as paper and dust! It was renamed ‘Aschentrekker’ (Ash puller) by Dutch traders who used it to draw out ash from their pipes.
Tourmaline has been used throughout the centuries by writers, artists and painters as it was believed to enhance creativity and strengthening body and spirit.
About the design
Tourmaline is a very resistant and strong gem (7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale). Thanks to its strength is one of the gems of choice when it comes to creative carving.
We placed the carved crystal on a perfectly round oxidised silver plate to give it more prominence.
We chose this beautiful piece of tourmaline carved out as a pyramid because we are fascinated by all the myths, legends and stories about this stone that originated in ancient Egypt. It’s part of our Star collection because of the link between pyramids, astronomy and Egyptian myths.
Tourmaline is the birthstone of October and is the perfect gift for someone born this month or with a creative spirit.
