Enter the world of Rubelites

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rubelites, not to be mistaken as Rubies belong to the Tourmaline family. Fine quality rubelites are very hard to come by. Most rubelites available in the market these days are usually red, tinged with brown tones. Purplish to pinkish overtones remain the most desirable colours for Rubelites – the main body colour being red. Rubelites are traditionally classified by GIA as class III gemstone: meaning, this gem almost always has inclusion and is almost never eye clean.

Above: Rare, collector Rubelite. 16carats. Beautiful vibrancy, lustre and colour!
