I found this rock several days ago and think it looks like RUBY !
Could you please help me to recognize it ?
Your rock appears to be a ruby (red colored corundum) in a granite / granite gneiss matrix. Because the red mineral appears to elongated and not spherical in outline is why I say it is corundum instead of being garnet (almandine, grossular).
