Rocket -like appreciation speed

Rapid appreciation

Parajib has less than 40 years of debut, and was first named in Paraiba, Brazil in 1988, and was named. Its light blue seems to be able to shine by itself, and the lake blue is full of charm, so the price of Parayba has soared in the past three decades that have surpassed any kind of stone. The speed of this curve can be drawn.

Data chart is derived from Retail Gemstone Price

Since its self -discovery, Paraba Tourmaline has taken the road of 50 years of expenses for 50 years in 30 years. How terrible is Paraba’s price in recent years? Summary in one sentence: In the past three years, the price of Parajiba has risen ten times.



The reason for the appreciation of Little Lan


The reASON of Price

For little friends who do not know Paraba tourmaline, its appreciation seems so unexpected and incredible. In fact, Paraba Tourmaline, which is truly produced in Brazil, has not been lower than $ 2,000 per carax in the early 1990s.

In terms of market value, other tourmaline could not catch up with Parajiba tourmaline by plane, and even the valuable red tourmaline and green tourmaline. At present, the price of 3 to 5 carats of Paraparaba is as high as $ 10,000 (or higher) per caraba.


High value is not groundless, summarize the basis of Paraba tourmaline high value:

1. The output is very rare

The rarity of the high -quality Paraba tourmaline in Brazil is equivalent to Kashmir sapphire. The industry even laughed: It may be dug a Paraba for every 10,000 diamonds. The high -quality Paraba tourmaline reserves in Paraba, Brazil are close to exhaustion. According to feedback from mining area: “Parajiba (including 3ct)” has not been mining for 3ct for a long time.

2. Difficulty in mining and fragile crystal structure

Parababa tourmaline is one of the most difficult color gems in mining. If it is used to use machines to minimize, it can basically only get residue. Therefore, Parajiba’s mining and sorting are basically completed by manual, and the cycle is longer.

3. Unique color


It is difficult for you to find the gorgeous blue of Parapaba tourmaline in nature, high saturation, and electro -light. When your eyes lock Parapaba tourmaline, you will sigh, as if he should just sell it so expensive.

4. Big name sweeping goods stocking


Originally, the output was less, and the jewelry name was not too much. Several major jewelry brands led by Cartier, Tiffany, and Bulgari are particularly liked to use Parapaba tourmaline in the design of high -end jewelry. Xavier Gargat, director of Cartier Cartier Senior Jewelery Workshop, even said: “Paraba can arouse my more creative enthusiasm.”


Paraba’s origin is up and down

Paraiba’s Origin

At present, the most common Paraja tourmaline in the consumer market comes from three major places: Brazil, Mozambique, Nigeria.

High -quality Paraba tourmaline produced in Brazil (Tuyuan Network)

As a recognized best place for Paraba, Brazil produces more than 90%of the auction market Parajiba tourmaline. From its own characteristics, Paraba in Brazil is generally smaller and naturally has unparalleled colors, and most of them do not need to be treated.

The other two major places of Paraba tourmaline: Mozambique and Nigeria can actually be collectively referred to as “African Origin”. Because Nigeria’s Paraba’s output is not stable, and the quality difference is large. Mozambique is currently the mainstream of the market Paraba and is the main output of the consumer market.

Monbix’s high -quality Paraba tourmaline (Tuyuan Network)

The Paraba tourmaline produced in Africa is relatively large, the neon has less sense, and the color tones will be slightly inferior, and most of them need to be heated to improve the color. However, compared with the heat treatment of red and sapphires, the internationally burning acceptance of Paraba will be higher. Because there are too few such gems, the Parapaba tourmaline seen in the market is basically burned by default.


In the previous gem price trend chart, it can be seen that the price requirements for rubber sapphires are NO Heat, but the price requirement for Paraba is Low Heat.

This is important, knock on the blackboard!


Due to the surge in demand, major brands have begun to enable Paraba in recent years. The picture below is Bulgari’s latest seasonal jewelry. At the same time, the rough stones of Brazil and Mozambique can be seen. It can be seen that the subtle color difference (small carat is Brazil, the neon is stronger, and the big stone in the middle is Mozambique), and it is displayed. From electric light blue to lake green concentration is different.

David Morrison’s latest season’s high-end jewelry- [Renaissance] uses a 16CT oval Palaiba with turquoise tone, which is very bright.


Paraba Defense Pit Guide

The news of paraiba

Big name love, market grabbing. Behind the fiery Paraba tourmaline, some bad people have some bad people using some strange methods to cheat some friends who love gems. Today, Xiaoji is also here to popularize some of the most common pits of Paraba tourmaline. Everyone must detour when everyone meets.


1. Patching color changes

Ask your friends, is this hand -made Palaba be beautiful? The color is strong, and you can even go to the auction.

In fact, they all changed color and changed a lot! The principle of changing the color is to use a blue patch under the stone in the inlaid, or the electroplating on the inlaid support to correct the color. It is difficult to find the naked eye. If it is not disassembled, special instruments are required to be checked. Therefore, you must buy it with the trust of the Caibao merchants, or ask for an international authority for appraisal certificate.

Of course, there is also a particularly annoying phenomenon in the process of Caibao’s transaction: a certificate! In Paraba’s color, some bad merchants have played to the extreme. He will send the Parapaba tourmaline that has not changed the color. After issuing a certificate, he will use the inlaid process or electroplating.

Therefore, if the friends find that their gems and the pictures on the certificate are inconsistent, or they suspect that the gem changes have changed color, they can directly send the gem to the international authoritative gem laboratory for re -inspection to maximize their rights and interests.


2. Bluefayer is not all Palaiba

If the price of Paraba Tourmaline is sold to you an ordinary blue tourmaline, will you be willing? when! It’s! Do not! meeting!

It is a pity that most of the testing agencies on the market are relatively simple in the appraisal of Paraba tourmaline, and even many institutions do not have the ability to identify Paraba. So how do we distinguish when we look at the certificate?

First of all, if you get an international appraisal certificate, the merchant and you say that it is Paraba tourmaline, then you have to learn to find keywords: “Neon (NEON), Copper, Paraiba ) “” “.

If you get the appraisal report of the Guild Gem Lab, it is easier!

The “Variety” (type) column of the Guild appraisal report will be clearly marked: “Natural Paraiba Tourmaline” (Natural Paraba Tourmaline). It can be distinguished in one second, and it is easy.

For the added value (place of origin, business noun, comprehensive evaluation) of Paraba, the GUILD appraisal report will also be clearly displayed:

In the “Origin” (origin) column of the GUILD identification report, the origin of the origin is clearly marked, such as Brazil (Brazil) in the figure. At the same time, in the “Trade Name) business name column,” Neon Blue “is marked (only when the relevant standards meet the relevant standards, it will not be marked without reaching).

For the requirements of “high -quality Paraba tourmaline” in the Guild Gem Labs standard, and when comprehensive quality such as cutting, firecorns, and clarity meets the standards, the Guild Appraisal Report will marked the highest evaluation of the unique color gemstone quality ——— “Vibrant-brilliance” (brilliant-shining).
