Comment: This ruby comes from the legendary Balas mines in today's Tajikistan. It does the legend honor: Magic red with trainloads of fluorescence. Flawless traditional hand-cut. Swirly inclusions are visible only under the lens. True Balas rubies (here corundum not spinel) are a rare find even for the seasoned ruby connoisseur. This is only the second unheated gem-quality ruby we have come across from that wildest of all regions in many years. Collector gem par excellence. Possibly the only untreated Tajik ruby in the market. GIA certified with unheated and origin. Vincent P. and Richard H. have written a beautiful piece about their search for the elusive Balas mines: http://www.ruby-sapphire.com/tajikistan_ruby_and_spinel.htm
