Categorized as a semi-precious jewel, Green Tourmaline (Verdelite) is one of the borosilicates, which have an extremely intricate structure. Due to the complicated structure of this semi-precious stone, a green tourmaline is available in a seemingly infinite number of forms and hues depending on where it was formed. It owes its valuable green color to the chrome in its structure. Its color which varies from yellowish-green, olive green to brownish green is very beautiful and resembles an emerald which is one of the “Big Four” together with diamond, ruby and sapphire. Its name, Verdelite comes from the Latin word ‘viridis’ which means green and the Greek suffix ‘lith’ which means stone. The main ores of this jewel are found in Brazil, Namibia, Nigeria, Mozambique, Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Green Tourmaline can is seen in history books because of its property of becoming electrically charged by just being heated or rubbed. This characteristic makes it attract specks of dust and pieces of paper. This property was utilized by Dutch traders in the 1700s to pull ashes from pipes. This is the reason it is called Aschentrekker which means ‘ash puller’. It is also believed that the green tourmaline is the stone of the archangel Angel Nemamiah. This jewel is said to strengthen the nervous system and absorb negative energies in the body if it is worn near the heart chakra area. This gem is also the birthstone of Capricorn and August Birthstone on the zodiac birthstone list.
