This specimen consists of a tough nepheline syenite matrix that houses several deep red-violet rubies. The visible rubies are very rough and are only translucent, but there is some definite crystal form visible. The largest visible crystal shows the best form though it appears to be broken. Its visible dimensions measure 0.6 x 0.4 x 0.4" (1.5 x 1.0 x 1.0 cm). Like the others, it is translucent but very cloudy and seems to have a thin layer of matrix covering part of it. They are all partially buried in the matrix, and could use a bit of cleaning and added exposure, but they still constitute an interesting specimen that is relatively low in price with respect to our selection.
