Tourmaline is the most colorful of all the gemstones and comes in just about every color. Pink, red, blue, green, yellow and multicolored are the available in the gem world. It is a fairly hard stone measuring about 7-7.5 on the Moh's scale of hardness. Scientifically, tourmaline is actually the name for a group of minerals that display the same chemical and physical properties. The name comes from the Sinhalese word, tura mali, which translates as stone of many colors. Tourmaline is considered by some to be a balancing stone that removes insecurities. Tourmaline is one of two birthstones for October.
