Here's a really fine crystal of RUBY (CORUNDUM) from the Mysore District in Karnataka, India. We picked this crystal out at the Tucson Gem Show, in the display of an Indian dealer in one of the large motel side shows. The classic locality at Mysore has, for all practical purposes, been closed due to new environmental restrictions that were placed on mining around 2008. Since then, only hand digging has been allowed, which has severely curtailed production.. Only very small crystals have come out since the changes, and there are no more of the large pieces from the deepest layers for which the site is famous.
