Opal and tourmaline are his favorite gems (and his birthstones!) Wes says, "Opals are mystical and magical to look at! They possess amazing spectral colors like no other gem. They are completely unique, as no two opals have the same color patterns!" He loves the Australian material especially the rare Black Opals! Wes also loves tourmaline for its incredible ranges of rich colors, durability and overall beauty!""



This stone consists of more color variants than any other gemstone in the world. Usually rich in iron these stones run from black to bluish-black to deep brown. Depending on the trace elements colors can be blue, green, red, yellow, and pink. Crystals can be bi-colored or multicolored and some stones change color when viewed from different angles. Tourmaline from Sri Lanka was first introduced to Europe by the Dutch East India Company. Today tourmaline is mined in Brazil, Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Afghanistan, Pakistan and the United States.
