A super size rubellite tourmaline at 78.53ct for your imagination.
This rubellite is so much like a Balas Ruby, or spinel, with its palette of red and magenta. The stone is precisely the color of dark red grapes, except vivid.
Its color cannot be anything but intense in its jumbo size.
Rubellite is the most prized and expensive member of the tourmaline family.
The fate of this collector stone will depend on original design.
