Re: Question

Hi Ward

I had a look at your photos I am no expert with minerals. I have to agree with Becky about the ruby/sapphire part. Although I don�t think she had the matrix right Fuchsite and Zoisite are typically green in color or at least the material I have seen.

Two or three years back there was a guy from some where Africa selling the same thing as in your photos he called it ruby in matrix. He did not know what the matrix was. The matrix ran in color from light gray to a dark gray. I bought from him five or six examples of this material. Everything he had in this material was three to four inches in diameter and kind of round and about half inch thick. Oh yes he was set up at the GLW Show in Franklin N.C.

Hope this helps
Bob
