The red or pink variety of elbaite tourmaline, named from the Latin, meaning ‘reddish’. A very popular gem as a less expensive alternative to ruby, it also comes in much larger and often cleaner specimens. Brazil is the world’s largest producer of rubellite, and today there are also several important African sources. Rubellite can be safely and stably irradiated to intensify the red colour. As this treatment cannot be detected, it should be assumed that most rubellites are treated.

Gembridge Members source their gem-quality stones from countries all over the world, including many famous regions and mines. While origin is not an indicator of quality, it does provide context for buyers.

Origins listed on Gembridge may be stated as an opinion on a laboratory report or described by the Seller familiar with the stone’s provenance.

Gemstones come in many different forms. On Gembridge, we describe each by its shape in simple terms – round, square, cushion etc. Where relevant, we may also list the style of cutting, such as brilliant, step etc.

Although untreated gems are highly prized, there are many universally accepted treatments that enhance a gemstone’s beauty, including heating (for colour), and oiling (for clarity). On Gembridge, all treatments must be fully disclosed, so you know exactly what kind of gemstone you are purchasing.
