a deep red carbuncle

Description:   The surfaces of this small, tear-shaped gem have been smoothed by wind or water, though a few scratches still report recent damage. In color, it competes with the deepest, darkest red found in the most valuable rubies, with a purplish-blue color present in the sparkling fire at its core.
