Sterling Silver 10in Pink Rubelite Tourmaline, 69 x 19 Zebra Stone Jasper Length 4"Pendent.
Rubellite, also known as red tourmaline, is a transparent gemstone from the colorful family of tourmaline. Its name came from the Latin word ‘rubellus’ which means ‘reddish.’ The trace element of manganese produces its color, which varies from violet and dark red to dramatic pinkish-red; thus, making it comparable to ruby. However, unlike the magnificent precious stone ruby, the rubellite tourmaline is a rare and multi-faceted gemstone. Owing to its rarity, color, and beauty, rubellite is the most expensive member of the tourmaline family.
Further, rubellite is a pyroelectric stone. This means that it can generate electric potential when heated. It is common for these red tourmalines to have inclusions and buyers often value untreated rubellites because of their rarity and beauty. Be careful though, as not all red tourmalines are rubellite as the name only applies to red tourmalines with high saturation.
Brazil, Madagascar, Mozambique, Nigeria, and Pakistan are the known leading sources of high-quality rubellites.
Rubellite is said to be connected to the heart chakra and the root chakra. This connection makes the gem a source of good-flowing prana or a life-giving force; thus, it provides healing to the mind, body, and soul. It also revitalizes passion and strengthens loving commitments.
Above all, rubellite is a stone of the perfected heart as its connection to the heart chakra paves the way for love—the kind that transcends earth and reaches out to the universe. It is full of love, life, passion, and joy.
Additionally, rubellite is known for its many uses throughout history. As a pyroelectric gemstone, it is believed to help neutralize the harmful effects of electronics. It also serves as an electrical tuning circuit for radio and TV frequencies.
Metaphysically speaking, believers count on rubellite’s power to treat motion sickness, enhance the sense of smell, and treat digestive system disorders. For the brokenhearted, it soothes the heart as it promotes universal healing and conditions the self for the free-flowing energy of positivity, survivability, and stability.
Jasper can be found all over the world, but zebra jasper has been specifically mined in Africa, Russia and India.
Like other jaspers, zebra jasper is found all over the world and has been used since antiquity. But, unlike much jasper which is spotted, this variety of jasper marble is striped. Jasper, an opaque chalcedony, comes in a wide variety of colors, each with unique patterning. Zebra jasper is the variety of jasper known for its mottled warm brick red and avocado green appearance. The term "jasper" itself comes from the Greek work iaspi, which means "spotted stone." Jasper in general has been a gemstone used all over the world, worn by ancient Egyptian priests and carved as seals by the Minoans. While jasper is more widely available today, jasper was once considered a valuable stone.
Meaning: Zebra jasper motivates us to move out of apathy into action. It helps us avoid over-thinking and encourages us to just enjoy the experience of living. Zebra jasper's striking colors intensify that message. Like the swift, wild animal for which it's named, it shows us how to live. It says: Get out of your head! Get into your body. Let the zest for life flow through you. On top of this, zebra jasper stimulates the root chakra. This grounds us, helping us find enjoyment in the beauty of our world.
