A dozen ruby crystals are exposed in this host rock of mica and quartz. A few of the crystals are fairly nice, with enough of the crystal exposed to reveal a hexagonal, prismatic shape with tapering sides. Their color is more of a deep pink than a ruby red, and they are translucent. Under a long-wave ultraviolet light, however, they really shine. All of the rubies fluoresce a bright, perfect ruby red, the same color as the first laser (which was made from an artificial ruby).
