For sale is a very fine twinned crystal of ruby red spinel on vivid white marble from Luc Yen, Vietnam. The spinel crystal is octahedral in form with mirror like reflective faces, glass like, gorgeous! This crystal is actually a spinel twinned spinel crystal! The crystal is complete all round, and sits in just the right place on the matrix to give maximum visual impact. We obtained this piece on a trip to the Vietnamese mines in mid 2019, because of the huge demand from China for aesthetic specimen, there were very few seen in the market. Crystal measures 1.5 x 10.5mm. Its way way better in person! Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars.
