Wow! People gravitate toward this giant gem-like ruby colored chunk of lucite like they were in a secret mine discovering a massive gemstone. It's in fantastic shape and relatively heavy for plastic, as lucite is known to be. Very pretty. No damage, bottom has light scratching as expected due to age. Some small bubbles in the plastic, as shown in pictures (these don't show unless you are inspecting the piece). Great jewelry counter, desk or vanity display item. What is Lucite, you say? It is a polymethyl methacrylate, a synthetic organic compound of high molecular density. Say that three times fast. Circa 1950 to 1970.
