Rubellite Tourmaline Rectangular Cushion Set 16.59ctw
We don't believe you'll find four fine rubellite tourmalines better than this collection. Four rubellites of this quality, with a combined weight of 16.59ctw, was a rare find! Each was cut by master lapidary Avan Pham, a talented gem cutter that Senior Buyer Jay Boyle knows well. Ivan is an award-winning lapidary from Arizona who has won multiple AGTA Cuttng Edge Awards. These gems were formerly part of the Somewhere in The Rainbow collection, so to say these are museum quality is unarguable!

One of the most desirable of all tourmaline varieties, rubellite is the pink to red variety of elbaite tourmaline, but crystals may also include brownish, orangey or purplish hues. Stones that exhibit pure red or slightly purplish red color are considered the most valuable. With the exception of ruby and red spinel, rubellite is the only other gem known to occur in such a rich, dark red color. Incredibly scarce, with 'eye clean' material even rarer, rubellite is one of those special gems that demands a place in your gemstone collection!
