Tourmalines from many different African countries are competing on Chanthaburi market.
Nigeria rough is coming back, apparently from a new location with a less brownish color, Mozambique and Tanzania material are plenty in town looking for offers.
Apart from the Mozambique-Paraiba color which still demand incredible high prices as Japanese buyers are still crazy about this attractive neon blue color, all these other tourmalines show a decrease in prices, as much as 40%.
