Description

Add the vibrant blue of paraiba tourmaline to your jewelry designs at a budget-friendly price. This triplet is composed of clear quartz top and bottom; the adhesive that holds the two halves together suffuses the stone with a bright and distinctive blue reminiscent of paraiba. The natural transparency of crystal quartz makes it an ideal alternative to expensive gemstones or CZs.

One of the most common minerals, quartz comes in many varieties and colors. The two main categories are macrocrystalline, which are usually transparent and crystals are visible, and cryptocrystalline, which appear translucent or opaque. The many varieties of quartz each offer distinct characteristics and, according to folklore, their own powers and purposes.

Round-cut gemstones are highly popular and the most commonly available. Rio round gemstones are calibrated for size and hand inspected to ensure maximum attractiveness.
