03-20. Corundum #2.

From a Finger & Hazen resource.  Crystal structure and compression of ruby to 46 kbar.

A magnificent structure. It could have inspired a classical marble bust. Interestingly, on the right side, the smaller corundum structure with its red atoms reminds me of a delicate Japanese Geisha porcelain doll.
