Very Fine Star Ruby Cabochon
This lovely oval cabochon red ruby displays a 6-rayed star that is evident to the unaided eye. Decidedly red in hue almost blood redwhich is quite unusual for star rubies, as it is the "silk" that causes stars to form which tends to make the color milky. The body of the stone is unusually transparent for such a sharp star. At just under ten carats, this stone is desirable for its size, color, quality of asterism and proportions making a desirable gem for the knowledgable collector.
Weighing approximately 9.24 ct and measuring 12.5 x 10.5 x 5.5 mm
