Tormalina rossa Tourmaline derives from the Sinhalese term "turamali", which translates as "stone of mixed colors". The very name refers to the unique spectrum of colors displayed by this gemstone, which is second to none in the realm of precious stones. One of the most versatile of gemstones, tourmaline is available in every color, from colorless to black. It can show every tone from pastel to dark, and can exhibit various colors in the same stone.
The many different colors of tourmaline mean that this stone can easily be mistaken for just about any other gemstone. Many stones in the Russian Crown Jewels from the 17th century once thought to be rubies are actually tourmalines.
Tourmaline is of high clarity, has very few inclusions and is quite durable (rating of 7-7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale), all of which make tourmaline a very attractive buy. Large sizes are affordable as well.
Vivid pink to red tourmaline, often with a violet tinge, is known as rubellite. It is one of the most valuable tourmaline colors, particularly when its color resembles that of fine ruby.

I always check this site because they have unique options.
I ordered this really nice pair of Rubies from Gemselect and I love them because of all the detailed information you get. Also if you scroll down you can see other similar items single, in pairs, lots, bigger, smaller, etc and it's such an easy website to use.
I wasn't sure where to go to find a variety of gemstones to choose from in the size and shape that I was looking for. I'm really glad I found this website because the search options and filters made it really easy to find what I was looking for. The prices seem quite reasonable. This will be the first place I go the next time I'm looking for a gemstone!
