Rocks, Minerals, and Fossils Tourmaline is the name of a family of minerals with complex and variable chemical compositions.  Thanks to traces of different chemicals, Tourmaline occurs in over 100 colors.  Ancient Egyptians called it "rainbow rock," and the word Tourmaline comes from the Sri Lankan tur mali, meaning "multi-colored stone."  More about Tourmaline's chemical formula

All members of the Tourmaline family have the same basic trigonal crystal structure, occurring as long prismatic and columnar crystals that are usually triangular in cross-section.  No other common mineral has three sides.  Schorl, or Black Tourmaline, gets its black color from iron.  Another mineral variety of Tourmaline, lithium-rich elbaite, comes in a rainbow of colors, including Pink Tourmaline and Green Tourmaline.

The best-formed Tourmaline crystals are usually found in pegmatites, a very coarse-grained igneous rock, or in metamorphosed limestones in contact with granitic magma.  Because of its toughness, Tourmaline collects in gravel deposits and also occurs in sedimentary rocks.

The Tourmaline specimens on this page are from Brazil.
