Pink Tourmaline

Pink tourmaline is a member of the tourmaline family. Colours can range from pale to bright hot pink. Rubellite is a name for pink, red, purplish red, orangey red or brownish red tourmaline although some in the trade argue that the term should not apply to pink tourmaline.

Each of Tourmaline’s colours have different origins:

Green and blue colours are from iron and possibly titanium.

Reds and pinks, and possibly yellows are created by Manganese. With some pink and yellow tourmalines created by the manganese being exposed to radiation.
