    Gemstone: Rubelite Tourmaline - 15.15 Cts.

    Featuring an elegant oval shape, this Rubellite Tourmaline is a showstopper. This particular variety of Tourmaline is known for its intense pinkish-red color. This particular example has that captivating pinkish-red bodycolor in spades. The color is so well saturated that it is hard to take one's eye off of it as it almost looks like a piece of Jolly Rancher candy. The stone comes to life with modified brilliant facets and strong scintillation. Tourmaline gemstones are commonly included, and this example is no exception. There are visible needle-like inclusions which serve to add depth to the stone. There are a few minor abrasions to the table facet junctions and a nick on the pavilion, but, otherwise, this large 15+ carat dazzler is in good condition. This color is hard to beat, and this will make an amazing piece of jewelry - or just simply add a pop of color to some discerning collector's display cabinet.
    Measurements: 18.78 x 14.95 x 8.31 mm, 15.15 cts.
