Corundum var. Ruby
Arusha
Arusha Region, Tanzania
4.2 x 2.8 x 2.6 CM (miniature)
price: $250
new year 2021

A distinct vivid red Ruby on matrix from Tanzania. The specimen is repaired (re-attached to the matrix) but the Ruby is undamaged and doubly terminated. Moderately translucent, the form is more distinct and better exposed than most from this region. Vividly fluorescent, the repair helps keep the cost low. Ex John Buckley collection, his specimen number is painted on one edge but can be removed if desired.
