Corundum
Luc Yen, Yenbai Province, Vietnam
13 x 6 x 4mm

A strange Ruby crystal from the famous gem tracts around Luc Yen. About a decade ago, this area produced some impressive Spinel, Sapphire and Ruby crystals. This specimen is a fairly decent, lustrous, sharp tapered hexagonal pinkish-red crystal with small outer “spines” that resemble a Gastropod (snail) shell. The crystal is actually well-formed, and complete all the way around. It is not at all brown like so many I've seen from this locality either, and you can see good color when strongly backlit. An oddball Ruby crystal to be sure, and an inexpensive oddity for any collector of unusual minerals or gem crystals.
