A super size rubellite tourmaline at 78.53ct for your imagination.
This rubellite has a ruby like colour, an almost half-half mix of red and magenta. The stone is really the colour of dark red grapes, except vivid.
In terms of colour, I think the stone is intense and more red/purple than pink/purple.
Rubellite is the most prized and expensive member of the tourmaline family.
Design over destiny – at this size, it will be design that determines the fate of this collector stone.
