Stunning Large Carved Rubellite Tourmaline
Brazil
It has become very difficult to find rubellites with strong color in such a large size. Hand-carved in India, decorated to the front with a carving of three lotus flowers and to the reverse with a stylized single lotus blossom, the quality of the tourmaline used in this rich deep purplish pink tourmaline is exceptional.
Weighing approximately 220.5 carats, height 4.3cm
