Corundum (Var: Ruby)
Thumbnail, 1.7 x 1.7 x 1.5 cm
Jegdalek (Jagdalek; Jagdalak; Jagdalik) Ruby Mine, Sorobi District, Kabol (Kabul) Province, Afghanistan

The color and gemminess of this ruby are nonpareil, and the luster is very good. It has pigeon-blood red color and great translucency. Wendell regarded this as the best thumbnail he had seen of this style/locality. Ex. Wendell E. Wilson Collection.
