The rarity and richness in colour of rubelite sets it apart from other tourmalines. This gemstone is believed to bring courage and power to those fortunate enough to own one
Rubelites are the strong pink to red variety of tourmaline. The intense shades of pink to purplish red and ruby-red command a high price due to their rarity and richness of colour.
The name “Rubelite” is derived from the Latin “rubellus” meaning “reddish”.
It is believed that rubelite instils courage and a strong will in the wearer.
Rubelite’s most prized colour is deep, pinkish-red to slightly purplish red. Unlike some coloured stones, it is recognised for maintaining its color under different lighting. Tinges of brown or orange de-value this otherwise highly prized gemstone.
