Treatments: It is common practice for gem cutters to heat rubellite tourmalines to improve the gem's color and appearance.  You should assume that a rubellite tourmaline has been heat treated unless the seller specifically guarantees otherwise.  We believe that this stone has been heat treated.

Designer Notes:
This rubellite tourmaline with its beautiful color and faceting would look great as the center stone in a custom ring,  pendant or brooch.  To complement this vibrant gem,  you might consider neon-like paraiba tourmalines,  tsavorite garnets,  amethysts or even diamonds.
