Minas Gerais, Brazil
Most of our thumbnails come in 1.25 inch square perky boxes. Back in the day, specimens were glued to the piece of styrofoam inside each perky box. We are not responsible for any adhesive on the specimen and did not glue it ourselves.
Meaning "all colors," tourmaline has become the most fascinating of all gem crystals. In the past 10 years, the interest in tourmaline has spiked tremendously! Many special pockets are named and pedigreed, and the sheer variety in tourmaline will always keep it popular. Look for and get to know the various color zoning, usually in the form of banding and core-coloring. Tourmaline has somewhat of a cult following. Its just one of those gems that never ceases to amaze!!
Minas Gerais is perhaps the most famous and prolific mining region in the world in regards to sheer volume of productivity of specimens and gem rough! It contains the majority of Brazil's mineral specimen diversity, multiple pegmatite systems, and a long history and culture has developed around mining and specimen collecting. It is such a common region to label, that most just abbreviate it as MG, Brazil.
