This large thumbnail specimen consists entirely of 2 Ruby crystals. The larger of these crystals is complete and in moderately good condition, and has dimensions of the piece as a whole. The other does not exceed 0.5" (1.3 cm) in either length or diameter and is mostly intergrown with the larger. Both are fairly well-formed but obviously warped to a degree. Their hexagonal prismatic form is still discernable, though their edges are generally rounded and uneven, and their faces are heavily patterned and pitted. Both crystals have a deep red coloration with a strong violet hint and a very dull, almost matte luster, and are opaque to all intents and purposes. There a few crystals or pebbles of a black material embedded in the larger Ruby, but no host rock is present.
