The symposium Tourmaline 1997 was held in Nové Město na Moravě, Czech Republic and brought together a large group of mineralogists, petrologists, and geochemists, studying the role of tourmaline in geological environments. The meeting marked the start of rapid development of our knowledge on tourmaline crystal chemistry, origin, stability, physical properties, geochemistry, and the significance of its presence in various types of rock.
Twenty years later, organizers of the symposium Tourmaline 2017 had a pleasure to welcome more than 60 scientists from 16 countries with interests in tourmaline to the same place, to share their latest findings, start new collaborations, and broaden their knowledge on tourmaline and the boron cycle in various geological systems.
