Paraiba tourmalines are among the most sought after colored stones in the world. Prices of top stones have perhaps appreciated more than any other gemstone over the last 10-15 years. These stones are from the Mavuco area of Mozambique. Only some 10% of recovered stones actually show blue-to-green Paraiba-like colors without heat treatment. Unfortunately, there is little new production and stones like these are nearly impossible to find.
