Ruby Rod (Synthetic Sapphire) Laser or Jewelry

5/8" Wide X 6" Long
0.625" X 6"
16mm X 152 mm
121 grams or 605 carat wt.

I know nothing about designing or building a Laser. I was in the surplus equipment business for many years and bought a lot of Machinery and equipment at auction. This came from a lot of other functional Lasers purchased from McDonnell Douglas St. Louis (now Boeing) 23 years ago.

The rod has NO air bubbles and appears to have had coated ends of some sort at one time. It originally came with a double eliptical chamber I assume meant for 2 flash tubes with this rod mounted in the center. I no longer have the chamber. See Pictures. Rod is most likely synthetic sapphire (Ruby). It glows under UV light like natural Carundum (Ruby) does.

I am a rock collector and have several natural carundum (Ruby) crystals. This rod could be cut up and the pieces faceted for jewelry.


Price $300 Cash, prefer local buyer.
