Brown Tourmaline can be distinguished from Black Tourmaline because it exhibits the trait of pleochroism, meaning the colour of the specimen is much deeper when looking into the gemstone, rather than look at its side. If you have brown tourmaline, the stone will shine brown when exposed to light, the darkest color viewing down the C-axis and lighter color viewing perpendicular to the C-axis.
