This little stone happens to be my birthstone too. A rubellite is a beautiful dark pink tourmaline. Usually we see the bright pink version of the October birthstone, but I prefer this one. It has a rich color similar to a ruby, but more pink than red.
This stone is a faceted one that measures 5 X 6mm. I think it is going to go in a ring with a hit of pink gold to compliment it.
