Item #6769
$ 450
Corundum (sapphire
Passara, Uva Province, Sri Lanka

A splendid, little doubly-terminated pale blue sapphire crystal 2.6 cm long. It shows the classic hexagonal shape, tapered with horizontal striae (like Tessin-habit quartz) and is only slightly dinged. It is very transparent, but the pale color and inclusions probably kept it from being cut up for gems, which lowers the number of nice crystals available.
