Thumbnail, 2.6 x 1.3 x 0.8 cm
Jegdalek (Jagdalek; Jagdalak; Jagdalik) Ruby Mine, Sorobi District, Kabol (Kabul) Province, Afghanistan
A bright pigeon-blood-red ruby crystal, 2.6 x 1.3 x 0.8 cm in size, excavated cleanly so that it rises majestically from contrasting matrix! Note the complete-all-around, freestanding termination. In person, when backlit, the crystal practically glows and there is no mistaking what it is...A dramatic, colorful, and large crystal for a matrix specimen in this price range! 3.5 x 3.2 x 1.9 cm
