Tourmaline

Tourmalines are a group of more than twenty silicate minerals. They are semi-precious gemstones and come in a wide range of colours, with individual crystals often being bi- or even tri-coloured.

Featured in today’s post:

  • Schörl (brownish-black to black)
  • Dravite (yellow to brownish-black)

(The “Goodie of the Day” is a more or less daily feature of my tumblr. This can be anything that’s likely to improve my mood, and I hope it works the same way for some of you. Enjoy!)
