Although these rubies not Kenyan they are an important source of income for Artisinal miners and traders because these kind of deposits are not exactly gem quality but create amazing cut beads and cabs. The color is more violetish red but after heat treatment they turn a bright red especially if glass filled. I guess it’s up to the person buying the rough to decide what to do with them. For sure I might heat them or keep natural vs glass filling them!
On another note, after giving my talk in Kenya to the mostly female Artisinal Miners and traders audience, I got a beautiful message from a young Kenyan man who joined them called Hesbon. If you ever wonder what keeps me so focused on supporting youth and those oppressed by political corruption, please read the message below:
Dear Mr Yianni,
Thank you for the information you shared with us Kenyans about gems and jewelry. You challenged and inspired us to build our own factories to manufacture and design our own jeweleries and create wealth and jobs for our people and not to sell our minerals raw.I can't forget your closing remark that"God deposited this resources in the most disadvantaged areas in order to feed those people, and consumers don't want perfect gems it is about stories".You planted a dream in me and I have begun to put up a business plan I believe to birth it one day .Thank you for being a blessing to us Kenyans this truth has been hidden from us and we have believed that only asians and whites were capable.I believe you will be of more benefit to me I am looking forward for more great advices and information from you .I will be proud one day to see you at the official launch of this big dream modern factory.You have forever changed my life.
Respectfully,Hesbon @owuorhesbon .
💎(I’m a big tough guy but Hesbon managed to put tears in my eyes. These kind of messages give reason to my life here on earth. Words afterall are far more powerful than all the rubies of the world. Let’s all pray to see this young man succeed!) 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼💙
Super Sweet Septarian Heart with amazing yellow calcite “teeth” (my word, otherwise known as crystals 😹) and cavity.
Fun Fact: you can only find septarians in southern Utah and Madagascar where conditions are similar.
Septarians are formed from inorganic and organic material that deposited to the sea floor (at the time) forming mud balls or “nodules.” When the ocean receded, the mud balls began to shrink and crack creating what you see today!
