History/Mythology: Pink Tourmaline ranges in colour from a pale rose pink right the way through to deep red/pink stone. Pink Tourmaline is also known as Rubellite. It was first discovered by Dutch traders in the late 1600s of the West Coast of Italy. Legend says that Tourmalines got all their different colours because it traveled along the rainbow in creation. It received its name from the Sinhalese term ‘turmali’ which was the name of all coloured crystals from the islands of Sri Lanka at the time.
