Description

The model used is a hexagonal purple opaque Coroudum, variant Ruby, from Mysore, Karnataka, India.
The size is 24x43x39 mm (121 gr.)

It is an excellent specimen where you can see the hexagonal crystal structure. There is also some traces of yellow matrix.


Corundum
Corundum has two primary gem varieties: Ruby and Sapphire. Rubies are red due to the presence of chromium, and sapphires exhibit a range of colors depending on what transition metal is present.

Corundum is a crystalline form of aluminum oxide typically containing traces of iron, titanium, vanadium, and chromium. It is a rock-forming mineral. It is a naturally transparent material but can have different colors depending on the presence of transition metal impurities in its crystalline structure.
