In stock


This deep rich red rubellite tourmaline shows hints of a dark purple. It comes from the Oceanview Mine in Pala, California. A limited amount of gem-grade deep red rubellite was found in the Big Kahuna II zone in the Oceanview in 2010 and 2011; most were quite small. This came from one of the large relatively clean crystals. It was faceted for me by one of the miners, Phil Osborn. While its slightly included, the appearance in the and is all about the rich color, and the inclusions are not easily visible at a normal viewing distance. The gem weighs 8.1 carats and measures 19.4 x 7.9 x 5.8 mm.
