An Introduction

Ranging from dramatic pink, red to violet, Rubellite is a multifarious gemstone known for its rarity.

Rubellite belongs to the colorful family of Tourmalines. The stone got its name from the Latin word “Rubellus”, which mean reddish. Owing to its uniqueness and rarity, Rubellite is the most expensive stone in the Tourmaline family. Another sporadic quality about Rubellite is that its pyroelectric, meaning the stone gets electrically charged when heated.
