Trapiche rubies are a rare variety of ruby named after a six-spoked cogwheel used in sugar cane mills (trapiche de cańa azucar in Spanish).
Trapiche rubies often have sharp, hexagonal growth lines that create a fixed, 6-ray star.
Trapiche rubies are currently found in only 2 locations on earth: Mong Hsu, Myanmar (Burma) and India.

Necklace measures 17.5" long and is fastened by a standard lobster claw clasp, hallmarked "18KT Italy"
Gross weight of the necklace is 9.2 grams.
