Global Gemology is an NAJA Accredited Gemological Laboratory.  All gem and jewelry items have been examined by a Graduate Gemologist & Certified Master Appraiser.

Rubellite is the pink to red variety of tourmaline.  Fine quality rubellite can be mistaken for ruby.  As a matter of fact, the Russian Crown Jewel known as "Caesar's Ruby" was later determined to be a red tourmaline (rubellite) pendant, not ruby!  Fun Fact:  Tourmaline is both pyroelectric and piezoelectric, meaning it is a gem that becomes electrically charged when heated or squeezed!

This high quality rubellite is a very attractive red color, resembling fine rubies.  It has been routinely heated to improve its appearance.  It measures 11.00 x 9.10 x 6.05mm and weighs 3.81 carats.
