Tourmaline is the name for a group of crystalline boron silicate minerals. This mineral species was identified by mineralogists in the 1800s. It has fascinating and useful properties, including being piezoelectric (creating electricity when pressurized) and pyroelectric (becoming electrically charged when heated).
Tourmaline can be found occurring in more colours and colour combinations than any other gemstone in the world! Tourmaline’s colours have many different causes. In general, it is said that trace amounts of iron and/or titanium create green and blue hues. Blue Tourmaline is called Indicolite. Black Tourmaline is known as Schorl.
Quartzite is also known as Snow Quartz or Milk Quartz due to its white colour. It is a metamorphic rock, originally consisting of Quartz-rich sandstone or chert which was exposed to heat and pressure usually related to tectonic compression.
Tourmalinated Quartz, or Tourmalated Quartz is the term for Tourmaline rods occuring in a Quartz matrix.
