Item details

TRAPICHE RUBY
Extremely rare, this material originates from a newly discovered mine in Southern India, but the supply is limited and when its gone, it’s gone! These pieces are from Adam’s friend Ashok’s private collection. Similar to a star ruby, this gem displays a 6-sectioned ray effect: Trapiche is the Spanish word for a spoked wheel. However, in star rubies the rays glide over the surface of the stone according to the light, whereas in a trapiche ruby the pattern is fixed and visible all the time.

You will receive the gemstone in the photographs. Weight 8g. Measures 20mm across the face of the gemstone, and 12mm in length. Completely natural - the gemstone has not been colour enhanced, glass filled, heat treated or modified in any way. Your ruby will be sent in an attractive display box.

The chief of the Mi'kmaq tribe named Adam 'Two Skies' on one of his many expeditions to places ranging from the dark jungle of the Amazon to the tropical reefs of Fiji. Each piece of his sustainably sourced jewellery comes with its own fascinating story, and can be traced from origin to creation.
