This pendant features a slice of North Carolina bicolor ruby and sapphire. The stone weighs in at 14.8 carats, and measures 0.85 x 0.78 inches (2.16 x2.00 cm) in length. It is set in solid 14k white gold wire.

This stone is a rare North Carolina ruby sapphire hybrid. North Carolina has been famed for its gemstones for centuries, and is known to host rubies, sapphires, emeralds and hiddenite in addition to many other lesser stones. However production these days is fairly low, so most of what I can find comes from old collections bought from locals.

This stone is a really neat example. I bought it as a ruby from an old collection but when I sliced it open the inside revealed that it was not only ruby, but sapphire as well! It has a red-pink base with striking, hexagonally arranged zones of geometric blue mixed throughout. I have never seen another stone quite like this one, from North Carolina or anywhere else!
