Tourmaline first became popular in 1876 when it was bought by Tiffany and Co. It can be found on every continent in colors ranging from red, pink, brown, black, yellow, purple, green, and blue. This wide variety of color comes from changes in its chemical composition. Darker tourmaline usually has more iron while lighter tourmalines have more lithium. The word tourmaline comes from the Tamil word turmali a Sri Lankan language.
