Another high-end blue gemstone, blue sapphire, never fails to turn heads with its various guises.
What makes blue sapphire gemstones so special is that they come in an ample range of blue hues, from softer, lighter shades like pastel and steel blue, to dark blue colors like royal blue and indigo blue.
This precious stone is believed to represent psychic awareness, mental focus, and wisdom.
4. Paraiba tourmaline
Due to its rarity and one-of-a-kind neon-bright blue color, paraiba tourmaline is regarded as one of the world’s most sought-after gemstones.
It derives its name from the northeast Brazilian state where it was first discovered in the late 1980s, Paraiba.
So how exactly does the paraiba tourmaline exude such a unique blue hue? It’s all thanks to the presence of copper, which notably isn’t typically found in tourmaline.
