The name rubellite is derived from the Latin word meaning "reddish" and is the most valuable color of tourmaline. Unusual for both its large diameter and intense color, this specimen displays the typical inclusions of rubellite as a result of red and green, which are shown to their advantage in this cross section of the original specimen. Cut across the c-axis it displays brilliant color.
