Long-crystal tourmaline in its multicolored varieties is considered a fancy stone. The black variations are called ravenar; they are valued more highly and considered gems. Tourmaline hues vary from green to blue, brown, or red, all in pale shades. Often a tourmaline crystal may display multiple hues, and in this case it is classified as rainbow tourmaline and is more valuable than purely monotone stones. Tourmaline can be used as an augmenting material in items and spells concerned with the storage or delay of spells so that they can be released later (such as a spell-storing weapon or spell flower). The more hues present in the stone and brighter they are, the more powerful the stone is as an augmenting component.
