Tourmalinated quartz is truly such a distinctive stone- there's really nothing like it. While it's solid as can be, it almost takes on the appearance of a glass bulb with black flecks of smoke frozen within, and this is thanks to the presence of black tourmaline within the clear quartz rock. This wondrous material can be incorporated into many different kinds of jewelry, but for a stunning individual fashion statement, then you can't go wrong with tourmalinated quartz earrings.
Both quartz and tourmaline are believed to bring good luck, so when the two are naturally combined in tourmalinated quartz, it becomes a prized good luck charm, and what better way to wear your lucky charm than a pair of gorgeous tourmalinated quartz earrings? In addition to good luck, it's believed that the stone has powers of peace and tranquillity, and so can have a calming and soothing effect when worn close to the skin.
While the majority of tourmalinated quartz stones appear to be semi transparent, there are of course many naturally occurring variations, and you might even be lucky enough to find jewelry made from tourmalinated quartz that has a more milky hue, making it look like there's a beautiful scent or vapour somehow trapped with the black flecks of smoke within the confines of the stone.

The stones unique coloring makes it a beautiful addition to your accessories collection, and something that is sure to be cherished for many years to come.
