Item Description

A gorgeous, robust, intense red rubellite cap around a schorl stalk makes this a very fine example of this rare habit from Mogok. When these came out, they went for many thousands of dollars. It has a tag on it of 1500 euros, in fact, which I thought was pretty reasonable, when I exchanged for it at the Munich 2009 show. The color is TOP for the material. A most unusual tourmaline style, even for those who thought they had em all...And in no way is this worth anything less than $2000 or it is a steal
