A unique cone-shaped, terminated Sapphire crystal with excellent color, from the famous Mogok gem tract region! It's doubly terminated and has a rich, translucent blue color and a satin luster. This doubly terminated Sapphire has an obvious hexagonal shape that tapers to a point on one end and has a flat termination on the other. This stunning crystal has a mass of 11.5 grams. It is immediately eye catching for the shape, which is sharper than most occur here (or anywhere, for that matter)
