    5. What is Tourmaline made of?

    Tourmaline has a variety of colours.

    • Iron-rich Tourmalines are usually black to bluish-black to deep brown,
    • Magnesium-rich varieties of Tourmaline are brown to yellow
    • Lithium-rich tourmalines can be any colour: blue, green, red, yellow, pink, etc. Rarely, it is colourless.
    • Bi-coloured and multi-coloured crystals are common, reflecting variations of fluid chemistry during crystallization. Crystals may be green at one end and pink at the other, or green on the outside and pink inside; this type is called Watermelon Tourmaline.
    • Some forms of tourmaline are dichroic; they change colour when viewed from different directions.

    The pink colour of tourmalines from many localities is the result of prolonged natural irradiation. During their growth, these tourmaline crystals incorporated Mn2+ and were initially very pale. Due to natural gamma ray exposure from radioactive decay of 40K in their granitic environment, gradual formation of Mn3+ ions occurs, which is responsible for the deepening of the pink to red colour.

    How to measure my wrist?

    Before getting a bracelet it’s important to know what size it should be. It's good to know what the average size is, but you can measure your own wrist easily.

    You should also consider whether or not you want a comfortable or loose fit.

    Women sizes: 16 to 20 cm

    • Most common: 17 cm
    • Average range: 17 – 18 cm

    Men sizes: 18 to 22 cm

    • Most common: 18.5 cm
    • Average range: 18-19 cm

    How to measure your wrist?

    1. Measure your wrist using a flexible measuring tape where you intend to wear the bracelet. If you don't have a measuring tape, you can use a rope and compare the measure with a ruler.
    2. Add almost 1 cm to that measurement to give it a comfortable fit, and space for the beads
    3. If you want a loose or snug fit, take/add around 1.2 cm from this figure
    4. If you have large beads, give it an extra half cm to accommodate them

    Gift: Which size should I choose if I buy a gift?

    Consult us if you have any doubt or question about the size!

    My advise: Choose the recommended medium size depending the type of person: medium small or medium, medium large.

    Post-sale service: We will provide a post-sale service to readjust the exact size directly with them once receiving the gift.

    Extension chain: When choosing a bracelet or necklace made on a chain, most of them can include an extension chain which enables to adjust easily the size.
