RUBY CRYSTALS

Mysore District, Karnataka, India
 

A small but nice little specimen of deep red ruby crystals in mica schist/gneiss matrix. Presented in a plastic display box as shown.

  

Ruby and sapphire are both varieties of the mineral corundum. Red corundum is called ruby, while all other colours of corundum, including colourless, are called sapphire.

 

Corundum forms in metamorphic rocks. This example is from a classic Indian ruby locality.
