Hello Barbra,

I would like to offer my sincere apologies for my comments. Using hearsay to dispute with a professional was a bit dim on my part. Apparently the term synthetic has a different meaning to those outside of the gem industry.

It turns out that the "synthetic tourmaline" used in blast sensors is made from powdered NATURAL Tourmaline mixed with a ceramic material.

Tony.


Oh my, Tony, no apologies necessary.

There was a lot of misinformation surrounding the allegations that synthetic tourmaline was actually available in the marketplace.

To recap, it is NOT.
