The name rubellite comes from the Latin word “rubellus” meaning reddish. Rubellite is one of the most prized members of the tourmaline gemstone family, coming in a range of romantic shades from deep cranberry red to fuchsia pink. However, not all red and pink tourmalines are considered rubellites. A red or pink tourmaline can only be called a rubellite if the gemstone’s color remains constant in different types of light. Many red and pink tourmalines reveal a brownish tint when displayed in artificial light, but rubellites always shine with the same color and intensity.

One of the most sought-after types of tourmaline, rubellite’s brilliant cranberry to fuchsia shades deliver a romantic display of color. Due to their crystal structure, almost all rubellites contain small inclusions, but gemstone connoisseurs feel these natural markings only add to each stone’s distinct beauty.
Available in an array of pretty pink to red shades, rubellites are becoming more and more popular for necklaces, rings, bracelets and brooches. Rubellites can be cut into all the traditional gemstone shapes and rubellite jewelry looks stunning in yellow or white gold settings. Due to the crystal structure of rubellites, these red-toned gems almost always have small inclusions, which do not take away from the gem’s intense color and beauty. In fact, a rubellite’s inclusions are thought to lend each stone added interest and uniqueness.
Rubellite gemstones can be heat treated to improve their color and this process has no effect on the quality of the stone.
The majority of gem-quality rubellite comes from Brazil, but rubellites are also found in Africa, Afghanistan and the United States.
