Winza, Mpwapwa district, Dodoma region, Tanzania

Unusual for THIS locality, here we have a stereotypical ruby crystal of classic hexagonal form and pink-red color. It looks more Russian or Vietnamese in form, but its from the same place as the odd bicolors and pure intense rubies we have seen come from Winza lately. Nicely doubly terminated, this prismatic crystal of lustrous and translucent ruby weighs 29 carats.
