Thumbnail, 1.6 x 0.7 x 0.5 cm
A fine set of 7, doubly terminated, gemmy and striated sapphire crystals from the deposits at Ratnapura, Sri Lanka. I would classify four of the crystals as blues; one as colorless and blue; one as pink with inclusions; and one a lavender/blue. Classic crystals from this well-known locale. Total weight is 14.09 carats.
