Sapphire Crystal in Mica Matrix
Montain Minerals International
Well-formed, pyramidal "barrel" of deep blue Corundum with white color zoning. This Sapphire sits on a mica matrix and pops out remarkably from the matrix. Picture was taken at the booth of Mountain Minerals International (Dudly Blauwet) at the Tucson show 2014.
