The ruby-red dots suspended inside this quartz are the likely source of its name. Ruby quartz has a truly one-of-a-kind appearance, with veins and clouds of beige, brown, black and white. Thin, clear flecks inside each bead give it a subtle sparkle. It is a natural gemstone, and we are told the color is natural as well. For a quartz, this stone is somewhat fragile, especially in larger sizes. When broken, the stone's surface is sugary, almost crumbly. Ruby quartz became available to us in 2004, apparently from a new mine in Africa.
Little historical information is available on any stone called ruby quartz, but its greatest fame has been from the X-Men comics and movies. The character Cyclops, field leader of the X-Men, must wear ruby-quartz lenses at all times to protect others from his dangerous optic blasts, which he cannot otherwise control. In reality, however, it would be extremely difficult to see through this cloudy stone!

Thank you for this order of interesting beads. I was surprised at the depth of color of the sodalite, as so often it looks somewhat washed out. The red malachite is fascinating, with its look of layers of sand and sediment -- a good geological representation of much of your state.
The color of these beads is really lovely and unusual -- soft without being pale. Thank you.
Beautiful beads. As usual the beads arrive packaged and labeled, which is such a treat for me. Thank you.
Your gemstones are always very high quality and I enjoy shopping with you.
