Corundum (Var: Ruby)
Mogok, Sagaing District, Mandalay Division, Burma (Myanmar)
Miniature, 3.4 x 2.8 x 2.7 cm
Beautiful, pretty pink and white, blocky ruby crystals to 2.1 cm are perched atop a crag of starkly contrasting, glassy, light gray marble on this very aesthetic specimen from Mogok, Burma. The color and luster of the rubies is very pleasing to the eye. Classic and beautiful material. Very little new material is coming from Burma, as a result of the trade embargo.
