Hexagonal ruby crystals of good size dominate this specimen. They range in size from 1/8 inch or less to about 1/2 inch long by 1/2 inch wide, and have very good crystal forms. Their color is a bit too violet for gems, and the stones are translucent at best, but the crystals are of very good quality. I'm not sure, but I believe that among the constituents of the Syenite matrix rest tiny, misshapen Garnet crystals.
