Paraiba Tourmaline, is an electric blue color and is named after the Paraiba region of Brazil where it was first discovered. It is the rarest of the fancy color of Tourmaline.
The significant Paraiba find recently yielded at 191.87 carat oval shaped stone that was mounted in this incredible necklace and given its own name: Ethereal Carolina Divine Paraiba.
While not quite as catchy a name as some of the other significant named gems of the century, I think the whimsical design of the necklace fits the stone it was created for.
Shoppers wishing to adorn themselves in this gemstone will have to pay a pretty penny, however, the much more common gemstone Blue Topaz is a good substitute.
