This elegant, large crystal of RUBY (CORUNDUM) came from Merlin's Crystal Mine in Mysore, Karnataka, India. It is especially notable for being very sharply formed and quite large. The faces of the crystal exhibit a waxy luster, and it is colored a vivid, deeply saturated cranberry red. This is an uncommonly large, complete, euhedral, double terminated floater crystal. It is opaque, and exhibits clearly recognizable hexagonal geometry with good terminations on both ends. This crystal exhibits the characteristic "stacked layers" appearance, and is a true classic old ruby from the locality for which India is famous. We found this gem crystal at an Indian dealer's room at the Tucson Gem, Rock & Mineral Show. The large size, the intense, vibrant color, and the sharp crystallization make this is a truly significant specimen from the world's best locality for large ruby crystals.
