Will Heierman Corundum
This fantastic specimen is from the Will Heierman corundum collection. Will was the most avid corundum collector for many years and focused on specimens from all worldwide locations. In his time collecting this was one of the finest Afghanistan rubies he was able to acquire. What makes this specimen stand out in comparison to many others is the size of the crystals and the luster and quality of them.
