Origin of Name & Mythology: From the Cingalese "tourmali," the name given to colored gem zircons on the island of Sri Lanka (Ceylon). In the early 1800s (some say 18th C) it was discovered that some of the "zircons" arriving in European gem centers from the far east were actually a previously undescribed mineral. Because of it's relatively recent discovery, there are no traditions associated with it.
