Big large rubellite tourmaline like this beauty are a scarce gem. This very fine rubellite tourmaline comes from Nigeria which is a country that produces exceptional tourmalines. The colour of this tourmaline is a deep pinkish red and is much better then the pictures suggest. Sometimes the camera just cannot capture the full depth and richness of the colours in a gem. This will be an exceptional gemstone to wear at night. This deep, sultry rubellite colour looks doubly amazing at night under lights. The gem has been cut in the classic Emerald Cut which suits this stone perfectly, the big broad long facets producing strong, striking flashes of pinks and reds. This rubellite tourmaline would make the ultimate evening dress ring.
