The name Paraiba Quartz (aka Medusa Quartz) is a reference to the very nice tonality of the Blue Gilalite inclusions similar to the typical neon colors of the Tourmalines from Paraiba, Brazil, not to the original location. These inclusions are described in Gems & Gemology as “Medusa Quartz with Gilalite inclusions”, in the Fall 2005 issue, Volume 41.
