Tourmaline Variety Rubellite
Gems and Jewelry, 18.0 x 12.0 mm; 22.70 cts
Jos Plateau, Nigeria
We are fortunate to offer a select group of very fine select rubellites - the red gem variety of tourmaline. These are all cut from the same parcel of rough, mined in Nigeria in around 2003 and stashed until now. NO FURTHER material of this combination of intensity and internal brightness has been mined since, in any quantity, and stones above 10 carats are now going up rapidly in value. This round portuguese cut gem is simpy put a flashy, attention-grabbing stone! Rich pink and with hints of maroon or purple, only very slightly included and super bright; what more could a collector want? A killer gem in all respects. Highly recommended - Our favorite stone of the entire rubellite lot. Untreated.
