These are pieces of rich blood red ruby grown by the czochralski process.  It has a rich base color that is intense but not too dark and good red fluorescence. The stones are each labelled with their letter and weight and can be purchased individually.

This is the first and most classic gem produced by science:  ruby. The very first gem crystals grown were rubies, and the growth process was developed further with demand from industry for a variety of technical applications including laser crystals, watch bearings and more.

We were really lucky to get our hands on some very fine material from contemporary production, likely meant for high end watch cases but the exact application is unknown.  They were grown by the advanced czochralski process which produces larger and more perfect crystals--whatever the application it certainly wasn't meant for gems, since these pieces would never have been rejected for that purpose.

This material is likely codoped with a small amount of iron, which gives it a more pure red color without the purplish tones ruby can have.
