Rough Ruby from Madagascar
As a collector, you may love these lower grade pieces of rough Ruby from Madagascar, currently sold in two sizes.
These are definitely not cutting grade, and will not show off the gorgeous red colour typical of higher quality Rubies. Most of these specimens will be almost black unless they are lit through with a torch or similar. However, they are an inexpensive choice for gemstone collectors.
You may notice these stones do tend to show off the hexagonal shapes common to Corundum (Ruby, Sapphire, etc).
