Description

This locality is the only one that offers a perfect form for rubies, with the famous triangular termination. When those crystals have both the sharpness and the very desirable pigeon blood red color, then the piece becomes significant for the species! This piece has it all! Razor sharp crystals, textbook in form, with the triangular termination, glowing pigeon blood red color and very gemmy! All this on an 1.3 cm crystal, very large for the quality! The luster varies from matte to wet looking from face to face and the crystal is terminated all around with only a tiny nick close to the matrix! Even the matrix is sculptural and you can admire this 360 degrees, it's beautiful all around and everyone will be asking to take it off the case and handle it! Please note it is hard to find this quality, what is normally offered is much less than this!
