It’s very abundant & has the best-developed crystals in pegmatite & in metamorphosed limestone in contact with granitic magmas. The colored varieties, when transparent and free from flaws, are cut as gems. Transparent crystals of tourmaline are dichroic – the depth of colour varies as the crystal is turned in the light. Another peculiarity of it is that crystal when heated acquires an electric charge & attracts small objects such as hair or small pieces of paper.
