NATURAL RUBY CRYSTAL
A beautiful Natural Ruby Crystal. Well formed Red Crystal Specimen of Corundum. Ruby has a long and storied history in its gemmy form, as a coveted gemstone around the world. These days most of the ruby you’ll find in mainstream jewellery shops is ‘created’, grown in labs to get the perfect shade and clarity popular among the public. Just one of the interesting features of this mineral. This Specimen has good classic Ruby Crystal hexagonal face. Nice colour too. Pics taken outside and under UVA to show off fluorescence. The bright pics are taken with UVA Torch.
