I have completed cleaning the mine rough corundum Ruby specimens. This
is a process that takes about two weeks per specimen. However, the results are outstanding and worth the effort. These
highly desirable specimens come from Mysore, Karnataka, India. Noted as being the
source for the best fluorescent Corundum (Ruby) in the world. This rare location is described in "Fluorescence,
Gems and Minerals Under Ultraviolet Light" by Manuel Robbins. These corundum rubies fluoresce a deep cherry red when exposed to longwave UV light.
No collection is complete without one of these fantastic specimens. Beautiful under natural light, incredible under LW-UV.
Every specimen has numerous crystals covering all sides.
