Most of the time when you say that something is "like nothing else on earth" you know you're exaggerating. But not with this gemstone. Not with this blue. It glows like a spark. Burns like blue lightning. And it even has the world's most jaded jewelers absolutely obsessed. Sometimes obsession gets a bad rap. But it can pay off big. Just ask Heitor Dimas Barbosa, the man who discovered what might be the most impressive blue in the history of the world: Paraiba Tourmaline.
Barbosa followed his unshakable belief that there was something special in the hills of Brazil. He spent years digging fruitlessly, inviting speculation of his sanity, until finally he discovered a tantalizing new variety of tourmaline with a color that could only be described as electric blue. To call it a sensation would be selling it short. Once this rare beauty hit the market, it became the most coveted stone in the industry.
If you want to become a member of the exclusive "paraiba club," it will cost you. Today the best examples easily command as much as $10,000 per carat. But we found a way to get you in the door for considerably less.
