Paraiba Tourmaline, not many have heard of it but its one of the most rare gemstones out there! There is only one Paraiba Tourmaline mined for every 10,000 diamonds. First discovered in the 1980s in Brazil the gemstone is known for its luminosity and its bright colours which can vary from glowing turquoise to blue/green.
I was very excited about photographing this gemstone mainly to see if it lived up to the expectations, and it definitely has. The image below is a ring from Gemporia.
