Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 3.3 x 3.5 cm
A superb crystallized, waxy-lustrous Ruby of the likes you rarely see. The single crystal measures an incredible 2.2 x 1.7 x 2.2 cm, has superb luster, and deep red color and translucence that are excellent. The chevron pattern on the sharp flat termination adds beauty and interest. Ex. Charlie Key.
