Although it does not exhibit classic crystal form which makes the name ruby jump out at you, this ruby does have an unusual color zoning, where the periphery is more deeply colored in classic ruby red lipstick outlining around a slightly lavender-hued center. It is on massive, gemmy, scapolite matrix...the ruby so transparent that the underlying scapolite is easily discernible. This is a fascinating corundum specimen, totally different than any other ruby you may own and for me, all the more interesting for that fact. Just blew me away when I saw it and realized what it was.
