Tourmaline: A Gemstone Spectrum (English, #3)
Out of Print! Mineral Monograph (formerly extraLapis English) #3
In the gem and mineral world, the word tourmaline is synonymous with color. Tourmaline is found in almost every imaginable hue from ruby-red to emerald-green to electric blue. Amazingly, two or more intense and highly contrasting colors can even be found in the same stone making tourmaline a spectacular display specimen and gemstone.
Tourmaline has been cherished in Europe’s royal treasuries for centuries but until relatively recently was assumed to be ruby or zircon. extraLapis English No. 3 explores the world of tourmaline from its fascinating history to the most recent discoveries, while unforgettable images bring life to the story of the stone.
Let extraLapis English No. 3 take you inside these colorful crystals and lead you to the places around the world where they are found.
