Global Gemology is an NAJA Accredited Gemological Laboratory.  All gem and jewelry items have been examined by a Graduate Gemologist (GG), Certified Master Appraiser (CMA), Registered Gemologist Appraiser (RGA), and Applied Jewelry Professional (AJP).

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 purplish 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.
