Ring with pink tourmaline or rubellite

The tourmaline family (which properties can be found here) shows a wide variety that gathers under the name of tourmaline plus its particular color.

The pink tourmaline is generally the rubellite variety which color can go from pink to red. This is the variety we will talk about here. In the area of pink hues, you can also find dravites (light acajou) and silerite (pink lilac to blue purple).
The most common name for the pink tourmaline is rubellite and it comes from the Latin word "rubellus" meaning reddish.

Until recently, the pink tourmaline was quite common and affordable. However, the demand considerably increased as well as its price. Nonetheless, due to the quality of its colors, it can easily replace a pink sapphire but is more affordable.
