    Gemstone: Rubellite Tourmaline - 23.02 Cts.

    Rubellite Tourmalines are known for their incredibly saturated red hue and are highly sought after by collectors. This stone is nicely saturated with a deep cherry red hue and a lovely pink undertone. This gem is accompanied by an AGL certification (CS 61404) attesting to its attributes. The report states this gemstone displays a purplish-red hue with an oval shape and a modified brilliant cut. There may be an indication the stone underwent an "irradiation" process to produce the bold hue seen here. The color stability is noted as very good. Rubellite is commonly included, and this gemstone is no different, with needle-like inclusions seen throughout that actually add a bit of dimension to the overall appearance. The pleasing stone weighs a noteworthy 23.02 carats and displays a good luster. The most important characteristic of this material is the color, and this stone exhibits that in spades. This material is also notoriously durable, making it a nice option for setting into jewelry.
    Measurements: 21.66 x 16.27 x 10.79 mm, 23 cts.

    Accompanied by AGL Certificate CS 61404

    Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000.
