Note : The stone was acquired as "Pink Tourmaline" from the dealer, but the color is more reddish-pink so they may be called Red Tourmaline or Rubellite as well. Whatever the name is, the stone is not abundant in the market and is unique and beautiful.

~~~ Tourmaline was first discovered by Dutch traders off the West Coast of Italy in the late 1600's or early 1700's. The name tourmaline comes from the Sinhalese term “turmali,” which was the name given to all colored crystals on the island of Sri Lanka at that time.

This all inclusive name indicates the inability of ancient gem dealers to differentiate tourmaline from other stones. In fact, at one time in history, pink and red tourmaline were thought to be rubies. Pink tourmaline tends to be pinker in color than ruby. However, their similarities in appearance are so strong that the stones in the Russian crown jewels believed to be rubies for centuries, are now thought to be tourmalines.

Deposits have been found in Afghanistan, Africa, Brazil and the USA, with some of the best stones coming from California. The pink stones vary from a pale pink to a deep rose pink almost red color. Many of these crystals are gemstone quality, with exceptional clarity and beauty.

The lighter colored stones are commonly called Pink Tourmaline and the darker reddish-pink or red stones are known as Rubellite or Red Tourmaline. ~~~
