Description/Interesting Notes: An absolutely exceptional example of GEM rubellite from this famed Russian locale!!! This specimen consists of a sharp, undamaged crystal of GEM rubellite tourmaline prominently perched on a partial complex quartz crystal!!! This locality is famous for its ru...bellite tourmaline, however the great majority of those specimen often exhibit some orange or yellowish tones and they are very rarely GEM clear - this remarkable specimen exhibits outstanding RED RED RED color that ranges from intense cranberry to intense red-magenta depending on the lighting!!! The crystal also shows intense red color down the c-axis and also shows a slightly purplish triangle-shaped core (a feature that is readily apparent in person but was difficult to capture in the pics)!!! This crystal is an AMAZING example of gem rubellite from this incredible locale (featured in the most recent issue of Mineralogical Record!)!!! The crystal is sharp, glassy, complete, and undamaged!!! The color is absolutely choice and the crystal exhibits gem clarity throughout (this crystal is valuable as gem rough alone)!!! This thick, robust, gemmy crystal measures 2.7cm!!! The pics hardly do it justice!!! Must be seen in person to be fully appreciated!!!Good luck and be sure to check out my other exciting mineral auctions on ebay!!!
