Ex. Dr. Ed David
This specimen has multiple crystals with the juiciest, waxy red luster and color you could ask for in a ruby. They GLOW with color. Each cluster is about an inch across. The striations on the crystal faces increase the reflection of light, too, as an added bonus. I have seen many rubies from here trickle out the last 5 years, but few with such overall impact as this. Comes with custom base.
