History and Geological Description
Dravite, also known as Brown Tourmaline, is a sodium magnesium member of the Tourmaline family. The origin of the name comes from the Drava River area in common day Slovenia, in which the stone was first reported back in 1884. Gustav Tschermak, who was a professor of Mineralogy and Petrography at the University of Vienna, coined the term “Dravite”. Its color ranges from dark brown to a light brown-yellow with semi-translucent crystals almost resembling Smoky Quartz. The best, and presumably rarest Dravite specimens come from the mines located in Yinnietharra, Australia. Other localities include mainly Brazil, Mexico, and Canada.
