What Do Tourmaline and Schorl Mean?
Reported by Christianus-Fridericus Garmann in 1707. The name "tourmali" was a generic name used in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) for coloured gems, mostly zircons. Hill called it Tourmaline Garnet in 1771, and Richard Kirwan shortened the name to "Tourmaline" in 1794.
The early history of the mineral Schorl shows that the name "Schorl" was in use before the year 1400 (AD) because a village known today as Zschorlau (in Saxony, Germany) was then named "Schorl". In English, the names "shorl" and "shirl" were used in the 18th century for Schorl.
