The pale beige mineral-gem Tourmaline happens to be my birthstone and possesses unexpected magical properties as we will soon see. It is also of great interest logologically since as an isogram it splits nicely into five two-letter words TO-UR-MA-LI-NE all of which may be found in standard dictionaries. Other splits are possible, making this gem very special.
