This is an untreated/unheated hexagonal Ruby floater crystal from the African Island of Madagascar. This Ruby has triangle "record keeper" etchings on the surfaces. I polished the sides of this stone to make it easy to set in jewelry, the two faces are uncut/polished. They are beautiful in jewelry, but also can make a great collection piece. Ruby is a mineral in the variety of Corundum with 9.0 on the Moh hardness scale, and the red color is caused primarily by the element Chromium. They are considered one of the four precious stones along with diamonds, sapphires and emeralds. In healing energy work the Ruby is often used with the Root Chakra and has self healing and energetic properties. Ruby is often associated with: passion, romance, protection, love wealth, prosperity, and courage. This beautiful crystal is a piece of history! Shown with a U.S. Dime(not included)/17.89 mm for size reference. Feel free to contact me about info on any of the stones or more pictures or a video.
