Tourmaline

You can almost taste the rainbow in a strand of these vibrant candy colored gemstones (please do not taste the beads). Tourmaline comes in a wide variety of bold colors ranging from bubblegum pinks, lemony yellows, earthy browns and emerald greens. Individual tourmaline crystals rarely come in one solid color, most show various shades of a color or even entirely different colors. This stone possesses the interesting trait of becoming electrically charged when heated or rubbed. It will attract dust and hairs. The Dutch once used this heated stone to clean their tobacco pipes, and called the stone "ashentrekker" (ash puller). This trait means that tourmaline requires cleaning more often than most gemstones. Do not use an ultrasonic cleaner for this gemstone.

Turquoise has been a highly popular semi-precious gem to many societies from the Egyptians to the Aztecs since ancient times. Turquoise is a very porous material, so heat, light, oils, and chemicals can have a negative effect on the stones color and luster. Because of this trait, most turquoise on today's jewelry market has been treated or "stabilized" with a plastic resin. Turquoise is most popular in southwestern fashions. Use turquoise beads with sterling silver beads findings, as well as heishi shells.
