Paraiba Tourmalines were first discovered in the 1980s in Brazil. Today, most of the Paraiba Tourmaline is mined in Mozambique. Paraibas are copper-bearing and because of this, they are neon in any kind of lighting. Besides copper, the German Foundation for Gemstone Research has also found high gold content within Paraiba Tourmalines, equating to about 8.6 parts per every million.
