Russo and Escaut (2006) wrote as follows (my translation) concerning the composition of the tourmaline:
Reading this report you've probably noted that most new finds were carried by dealers specialized in one country (Frederic Escaut in China, Patrick Allier in India, Denis Gravier in Madagascar).
Belgium is also concerned as the project would help improve links between French and Benelux waterways and work on improving the navigability of the Escaut is also scheduled.
