Here is a fine ruby crystal that comes from the famed diggings in the Mysore District in southern India, which are now closed. The hexagonal crystal is terminated on both ends and the sides have the characteristic stacked layers look of rubies from this area. The color is a rich, dark cranberry red, and the crystal is sharp and clean. Both the terminations are covered with raised triangles, the characteristic of a record keeper crystal (the standard mineralogical term for these is growth hillocks). And, there is a cute "baby" ruby crystal sitting up on top of the large crystal.
