This is the actual specimen being sold.

Tanzania is located alongside the mineral-rich fields and mountains of Mozambique and Zambia in Eastern Africa. Corundum (Ruby and Sapphire) deposits were discovered in Southern Tanzania in the early 1990s. Far rarer than Diamonds, Tanzanian Ruby is from a deposit discovered in 1992 located 60 kilometers west of Songea town in Tanzania’s Ruvuma Region. The population soon swelled by more than 10,000, as miners flocked to the region, with the Masuguru District being the main mining area.

Apart from Ruby, Songea Corundum contains a high level of magnesium, resulting in a wide variety of fancy colors. Songea has become the second most important Tanzanian mining area after Merelani, the home of Tanzanite. Like all sole source gemstones, Tanzanian Ruby possesses a genuine rarity.

Thank you for your interest and Blessed Be!
