For sale is a superb ruby matrix specimen from Afghanistan. We obtained this one off piece seven years ago direct from an Afghan mineral dealer. It has been in my cabinet since then, but now it is time to offer this richly adorned ruby specimen to the world. The crystal are all in-tacked, and have good luster. Large matrix specimens of ruby this size are very uncommon. Please remember our prices are in Australian dollars. Great vivid fluorescence! Interestingly the Jegdalek ruby mines have been in production since the 10th century!! This is an exceptional piece, we have been watching for years to seen similar specimen, but after all these years, have seen nothing that comes anywhere near the size of grandeur of this specimen. This is way way better in person!!
