Tourmaline is highly prized transparent to translucent gemstone.
Tourmaline is easily the most colorful of all the gemstones. The colors range from black to bluish-black, light brown to deep brown, yellow, blue, green, red, yellow, pink etc. Rarely is it colorless.
Bi-colored and multicolored crystals are common, reflecting variations of fluid chemistry during crystallization. Crystals may be green at one end and pink at the other, or green on the outside and pink inside: this type is called watermelon tourmaline. At the moment, watermelon tourmaline is tremendously popular.
Some forms of tourmaline are dichroic, in that they change color when viewed from different directions.
