More About Rubellite Tourmaline
Rubellite is a rare variant of tourmaline. Next to ruby and red spinel, it is the most saturated of red gems on the market. The rubellite stones that exhibit pure red to slightly purplish red are the most sought after. The rubellite stones can be found in larger gem sizes and can be eye-clean, meaning you cannot see the inclusions with the naked eye.
