This copper and manganese bearing tourmaline may be called "Paraiba tourmaline" in the trade. The name "Paraiba" comes from the Brazilian locality where this gem was first mined, however today it may come from several localities.
The colour of cuprian tourmalines may be improved by heating. It is also possible for this heating process to occur naturally when the gemstone is in the earth. To determine if the heating was done by man (as a treatment) vs. heating by nature may be difficult if not impossible.
