The exclusive Rubellite Tourmaline is one of the few red stones and doesn’t need to hide behind a Ruby, the red precious stone.
In fact it is often chosen over a Ruby because of its stunning colour and sometimes more valuable.
The name is derived from the the latin word ‘rubellus’ meaning red-coloured.
Tourmaline is a colourful semi-precious stone that is available from black to bluish black, dark brown, yellow, medium brown, blue to neon blue, lime to dark forest green, yellow, pink, red, reddish purple, and colourless.
Its name comes from the Sinhalese (a Sri Lankan dialect) word 'tura mali', literally meaning 'the stone of mixed colours'.
The most expensive ones are the blue Indicolite, the green Verdelite and the pink Rubellite that you can see here.
Tourmalines are usually given on 8th Wedding Anniversaries.
If you were born in October the Tourmaline is your birthstone along with the Opal.
The Rubellite has a diameter of 5 mm.
The round shank is 2 mm in diameter.
