Comment: Postponed from 2019 to 2020, a full-sized tourmaline in all varieties of colors but no color zoning. I find (in descending order) orange, pink, purple, red and violet. IGI in India (the same company as on 5th Avenue in NY, or London, not a fly-by-night lab) defined it as 'purplish pink rubellite' which is not wrong but, personally, I miss the orange. You may also find gemmologists who insist (almost a rhyme because we do it a lot) that rubellite must be red. Others insist that any dark-enough toned pink aka red or purple tourmaline is a rubellite. Dark-toned it is, but not as dark as in the handshots where the skin-hue conspires with the gem to steal color. To counter-conspire, I allowed the main image to catch as much light as it wanted (only natural daylight of course). Imagine reality moving in-between plus a never-ever missing bright spark of one or the other hue, or an always surprising mix thereof. Fulfilling our quality standard with ease: No treatment, no window, no inclusions (deep lens-view only). All-in-all an opportunity to snatch a clean seven carat rubellite at unique-color-rate $750/ct, obviously not shock-colored like this, but also less shocking on the credit-card-bill. A mild character but never overseen thanks to its rolling luster in a rather unprecedented color-combo. We can add bang & smack with a halo of half-pointer diamonds or 2mm neon pink tourmalines, all for a pendant obviously. Or keep it understated with the thinnest of all bezels; 15x10mm will catch attention in either case.

P.S. Half-dead UV-torch image added for fun.
