Treated! 15.25 ct. Blood Red Natural Ruby, Fun Jewelry Making Gem

Cut - Oval

Color - Blood Red

Clarity - Opaque, Included (has eye visible inclusions)

Origin - Madagascar

Treatment - This is a natural earth-mined ruby which has possibly been dyed but dye should be stable, and has definitely been beryllium treated which is where they fill fissures (any small cracks) with beryllium to stabilize the gem and make it look like a very expensive ruby for a fraction of the price. Obviously, this would be well over a million dollars if it was an untreated ruby. It is a natural ruby though and great for jewelry making. 

15.25 carats

What makes this gem special? Well, it looks like an astronomically expensive ruby. But due to treatment it is just a fun piece for jewelry making or a child's collection (over 12 years old due to choking hazard). If your child might actually eat it or put it in their mouths, don't buy it for them. God, I hate disclaimers, what a world. Even though treated this is a huge ruby.
