This is a natural ruby crystal from Burma that has only been heated to improve the colour..
ideal as specimens or natural jewelery Note we have taken some pictures under a bright torch light which makes the stone appear more pink/purple but it is more reddish.
Ruby is a pink to blood-red gemstone a variety of the mineral corundum (aluminium oxide]. The common red color is caused mainly by the presence of the element chromium. Its name comes from ruber, Latin for red. Other varieties of gem-quality corundum are called sapphires. Prices of rubies are primarily determined by color. The brightest and best “red” called pigeon blood-red, commands a huge premium over other rubies of similar quality. After color follows clarity: similar to diamonds, a clear stone will command a premium, but a ruby without any needle-like rutile inclusions will indicate that the stone has been treated one way or another. Cut and carat (size) also determine the price
admin adjustment seller cleartly stated rough and image taken in water and are not polished The photo showed these as being sparkly. They arrived rusty and ugly, in no way polished. Very disappointed.
QUALITY ROUGH Reply:
photo is taken with stones wet as per description they are rough pieces that need polishing , pls read description correctly
Gorgeous colour with great translucency. Lovely pieces, couple of flaws, but will keep one as specimen & freeform polish the others to set. And Thanks for the little Pyrite gift- though it looks more like Chalcopyrite??.
