An interesting, yet small, example of a ruby in matrix from Russia. Russia has a lot of minerals that many do not associate with it. Excellent service.

MARIAM STONE 'THE CALLIGRAPHERS STONE.
This stone is also called Script Stone, and Elephant Skin Jasper. Additional names I have seen include Mariam, Indian Script Stone, Arabic Script Stone, and Elephant Jasper.But i like the name Calligraphers stone.
There is a bunch bunch of conflicting information from normally reliable sources about this stone. What everyone agrees on is that it comes from India, it is fossil material of some type, and the two different colors are of different hardnesses. There is no agreement as to whether it is fossilized grasses & reeds, fossilized shell, or some combination of both. Some sources say it is a jasper and other sources say it is not really a jasper but a mixture of shells, sand, and limonite.Enjoy it as its a intruging stone.
