Henceforth, the world came to know of this vibrant gemstone as the “Canary Tourmaline”. It is now sought after worldwide for it’s unusual luminous electric yellow hue and rarity as only a tiny percentage of the rough mined stones can only be used as jewellery.
Any gem aficionado would know that tourmalines exist in a myriad of colours, but the luminous electric yellow was known to be lacking in the spectrum of tourmaline colours. It was only with the recent discovery of the Canary Tourmalines that this spectrum gap was filled, thanks to a rich abundance of manganese in the stones.
The enigmatic Canary Tourmaline also has a fruity secret. When the tourmalines are hauled from the mine, these precious babies are often found protectively covered with a layer of black material. The resourceful mine owners found out that by boiling these rough gemstones in water with lemon juice, they were able to get rid of the black material gently without causing any intrinsic damage to the stone beneath. Not only do the zesty Canary Tourmalines remind you of the lemon, they also have an intimate chemical connection with the citrus fruit.
Finally, this elusive gemstone that wowed the world and caused major “gold fever” in Japan has reached the sunny shores of Singapore, in Loang & Noi’s new “The Canary Tourmaline Collection”.
