When it comes to Ruby, Mogok is the world leader in the finest examples ever found. These gems have literally been mined for centuries and still remain one of the most desirable items for gem and mineral collectors alike. Although everybody is familiar with Rubies, there are only a few places around the globe that produce truly world-class crystals. This specimen is a very impressive example of Mogok Ruby that is not only sharp, but has excellent luster and a pleasing dark pinkish-red color. The piece is a complete doubly-terminated "floater" as well with excellent well-formed crystals faces showing beautiful hexagonal growth lines. You can get good color to come through if you shine a strong light behind it. Like all Rubies, this one shows a brilliant red fluorescence under UV light. If you're a collector of gem crystals think of how few Rubies there are on the market with such tremendous quality, color and form. Even though Rubies are ubiquitous in virtually every culture in the world, they are notably rare in fine crytallized examples. Specimen weight is 14.58 grams.
