Corundum V. Ruby in Schist

new june 17

A big and sharp (2.7CM) main Ruby crystal is well exposed and nicely perched on the matrix. Very good color with some purple hues seen in some lighting that indicates that the core of the crystal may be a blue Sapphire. The crystal habit is the rare flattened habit with one overdeveloped face that dominates the prism. In fine condition with excellent esthetics, this also shows the crossing lines of inclusions that cause a star reflection on the terminations.
