This is a lustrous and gemmy, deep red crystal. It is nearly complete all around, with just minor contact on the back side. For sharpness and clarity, this is one of the larger crystals of quality we have yet seen. There is some cutting rough in this crystal, as well. Seldom do ruby crystals come out of the ground as sharp and lustrous as from this new locality and this is a steller example of what is so "hot" about it. 21.75 carats
