Behold the beautiful Cuprian Tourmaline. Cuprian meaning it's copper bearing. It's a way to differentiate Paraiba from African copper bearing Tourmaline. The easiest thing to remember is that all Paraiba is cuprian but not all Cuprian is Paraiba. The thing to remember is that Paraiba is origin specific. The name denotes the origin. Paraiba all but mined out the only good gem quality pieces like this are from Mozambique. Another thing to remember is that copper bearing tourmaline is nearly impossible to detect heating in. A stone like this weighing 6.45ct will run you about three thousand dollars. And free shipping.
