The crystals are found in the states of Maine, and California, as well as the countries of Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Pakistan, Tanzania and Afghanistan, The range of colors and availability, are easy to find online and at jewelry stores. The many color options are typically given memorable names.

The primary color options include Pink Tourmaline, Green and Blue Tourmaline, and Yellow Tourmaline. There is also a bi-color version of the gemstone. One of the popular bi-colored stones is known as the Watermelon Tourmaline, with green and red graduations.
