Looking to buy a raw ruby

LiquidChaos66LiquidChaos66 OregonPosts: 3,767 ✭✭✭✭
as the title says. My daughter got a rocks/minerals/gems kit from her school book order. when she got to the ruby it was a mass of green corundum and a tiny TINY speck of red. I would like to buy her a decent sized raw ruby to replace it with. I have eBay as an option but would rather see if any of you BOTL/SOTL might have some on hand. Let me know what you have and how much you want.... lets make a deal! :) Doesn't have to be huge.... just something fun for my daughter.

    Just looked through her kit. It has all of those already. And some of the basic minerals.

    LMFAO!!! I don't think those would be appropriate for a 7 year old. Lol

    She wouldn't know if you didn't tell her. Only you'd know and you could show them off to your buddies....  :p

    I will be heading to Myamar next week to deliver  a suitcase full of unmarked hundred dollar bills and several packing cases full of surplus Chinese weapons to the commander of the United Liberation Front hiding in the Zeebyu Taungdan mountains in exchange for several hundred very attractive, totally hollow Buddha figurines not filled with anything, honest. If I have any strength left after being tortured by the commander's sadistic henchmen, I will ask him if he has any spare rubies I can bring back to you. 
    Now that's looking out for a brother!
