Tourmaline - Rubellite

Rubellite tourmaline is one of the most sought-after, rare and valuable members of the tourmaline group. The name 'rubellite' is derived from the Latin 'rubellus' which translates simply as 'red', and the stone is desired for its intense hot pink to red colour. Rubellite should have blue-violet tones, with no yellow-brown tint. Rubellite should shine as brightly under artificial light as it does in daylight, whereas standard tourmaline may acquire a brownish tint, and this may be seen as a test as to whether a stone is actually true rubellite or not.
