About the image on this page

Corundum from North Carolina

Corundum, when it is gem quality and has a pink to red color, is called ruby. This one may or may not be considered a ruby, but it is definitely a really pretty corundum crystal.  It was collected on a DMC field trip in North Carolina. The green around it is a mineral called smaragdite.
