The rubellite is a particularly beautiful gemstone from the colourful family of the tourmalines. Its colour shines in the most beautiful nuances from red to shocking pink.
Nearly all rubellites have inclusions-this is what the ICA states about it:
Whilst coloured gemstones in good qualities should as a rule be as free of inclusions as possible, they are looked upon with some favour in the case of the rubellite: indeed it is inclusions that render this stone really interesting from the point of view of the connoisseur. Having said that, they should be subtle, and they must not upset the way in which the light passes through this magnificent gemstone, for that could make it look cloudy or milky. Nevertheless, a rubellite with only a few fine inclusions is of course more valuable than one with inclusions which are clearly visible.
