1.89 ct. Cat's Eye Rubellite

Color:  Medium Dark Pinkish-Red Clarity:  Translucent
Origin:  Brazil Cut:  Oval Cabochon
Treatments:  None Measurements:  6.9 x 6 mm

Unquestionably the finest example of a cat's eye Tourmaline that we have seen.  What is more, the stone is a fantastic Rubellite color as well.  The eye is extremely sharp, particularly for Tourmaline.  Interestingly, the chatoyancy-producing needles are extremely fine and are contained largely in the top 25% of the gem - the result of this is that the main body of the gem remains fully transparent.  The resulting effect gives the stone a remarkable color that would be impossible otherwise.  Great shape and polish as well.  An outstanding gem and one that could not be improved upon.
