For sale is a top specimen ruby crystal from Luc Yen, Vietnam. This is a stunning stand alone single crystal, double terminated. This is about as good as it gets from this Vietnamese location. Featuring wonderful glassy luster, great ruby crystal shape, this crystal just speaks quality. The size is outstanding!! We acquired this on our last trip to Vietnam 20 months ago, this was the only crystal of this size we saw, among hundreds viewed. Obviously we had to pay a high price for this piece even at the mine. It has very sharp faces, and deep, pinkish-red color. It is translucent. A wonderful crystal, weighing an impressive 80cts plus!!! This is a floater crystal with a small amount of mica associated, the seller suggested it was chonrodoite associated ,but Im not really sure this is correct. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars. Please compare our prices.
