I have specimens ranging from exceptional, one-of-a-kind, specimens for the collector to reference pieces for the beginning collector.

Featured Item: Ruby
Location: Mogok, Burma
Size: 2 1/2″ tall x 2″ diameter.
Comments: Ruby crystals rarely ever enter the collector mineral market when they have gem color and transparency. the cut stone value of a gem quality crystal normally exceeds the value as a collector specimen. This crystal is very unusual in that it has areas of cutting quality, stunning deep “Pigeons Blood” red color, and it comes from the most sought after locality; the legendary mines of Burma . The fact that the crystal weighs in at 1170 carats is only that much more shocking. Finding a Ruby crystal that has retained sharp crystal faces and crystal form is also quite rare as most have a very water worn appearance due the weathered environment in which they are found. This is a complete barrel shaped crystal with all of its faces and termination in tact. Indeed one of the most amazing ruby crystals ever unearthed.
