ID: CC8134
A charming miniature composed of an aesthetic fuschia-pink Corundum crystal, variety Ruby, perched on a small snowy-white block of marble which is attached to a hexagonal section of gooseberry-greenish-brown Dravite Tourmaline.  From the Jegdalek ruby deposit in the Surobi District of Kabul Province, Afghanistan, the Ruby crystal measures 1.4 cm tall by roughly 0.5 x 0.2 cm in section.  The crystal is horizontally stepped and tapered towards the termination.  A terrific combination of Ruby with Dravite Tourmaline from this important deposit at Jegdalek.
