Turmaline Paraiba


#1

Can anyone help me figure out if the gem I have its actual Turmaline Paraiba? I have pictures and videos of it!!!


#2

You have to take it and have it tested for copper and manganese to be certain.

Yes I agree unless the chemical composition is checked to establish how much copper and manganese is in the gem you cannot say it is Paraiba. I had a gemstone I thought was Paraiba but turned out it did not have the copper content for a Paraiba
