Item Description

Every once in a while I like to throw a gem CRYSTAL into the gemstone auctions. A piece like this would make a great match for a rough and cut Spinel set. This piece is not a faceted stone, but rather a gem quality Ruby Spinel crystal that would easily be wirewrapped into a great piece of jewelry, or used as a reference piece to match a gemstone that you might have from this well known gem district. The crystal has a very attractive red color (with a slight pink overtone) and is very sharp, and not at all rounded, like many of the crystals that are found in the various streams in Burma where this material originates. Do not miss out on this little beauty.
