This specimen came marked as sapphire but I have my suspicions it is spinel. It exhibits that typical raspberry color I associate more with spinel.Unfortunately, without proper equipment, no way to tell the difference. Either way, it is quite good with a 1.3cm twinned crystal at the center and more etched looking crystals scattered across the quartz matrix. The bottom is sawn.
