    Via the search version I did not find
    a thread dedicated to Paraiba or
    Copper bearing tourmalines. So I
    thought it's about time to start one!

    There are so many beauties here! I love how Mochiko's pops in the setting she chose - its a good example of how you don't even notice inclusions when you get them that vividly saturated. Some of LD's are off the charts, Greg's set the standard for wallop in small packages, and your Leon Mege is artwork. Keep 'em coming!

    LD, are you sure you have enough finger real estate to wear all those gorgeous cuprians? :naughty: :naughty:


    Thanks for starting the thread, Acinom. Your blue Paraiba is one of the most gorgeous things I've seen on PS! :love:

    I could bookmark this thread and look at nothing else.

    (glad you think my ring is worthy Acinom despite being babies..I'm having a matching pendant made..unfortunately, the stones in that one will be more towards the green side and no windex blues)

    I don't want to take the honors away from you, acinom, since you are the ringleader and eye candy poster for this thread, but I know TL has some lovely cuprian stones :naughty:

    Re: The Show your Paraiba or Copper bearing tourmaline threa

    Thank you all for chiming in and liking the thread! It was such a pleasure making this thread and I am glad there are more Paraiba and cuprian tourmaline fans. I have not been able to find more so hopefully others will post as well.

    Minousbijoux: I found TL's pretty ones!! Thank you for mentioning it.
    I love love love your gorgeous ring. Do you wear it often? Would love to see more pics. And thank you for liking my ring! I keep falling in love with it.

    Lovedogs: hopefully you will find your dreamstone in the future. I can recommend looking at cabochons as their pricing is more budget friendly.

    mochiko: I am a huge fan of your gorgeous ring! I cannot see enough pics of it. Glad you love the thread. Thanks for the kind words about my ring.

    rockinruby: glad you love the thread! There are so much PSers with gorgeous glowing stones and beautiful rings.

    TL: 8-) 8-) 8-)

    Yssie: glad you are discovering the CS world! Personally I find colored stones fascinating. I cannot wait to see your yellow zircon by the way.

    Lilmosun: are you kidding me? I love that ring! It's such a stunning piece. Looking forward to see the pendant. I love greens as much as I love the blues.

    DK : ha!!! You must be up to something??? You cannot leave us hanging here.

    Arkieb: thanks for posting that link! I even posted and commented in that thread. Not sure how I could forget.

    Lovinggems: glad you like the thread :wavey:

    Sparkliesluver: hopefully we can add many more pics of that stunning stone of yours!
