Ruby is a type of aluminum oxide (or the mineral corundum) and is a gemstone whose color ranges from blood-red to pinkish-red. Ruby has this color due to chromium’s presence, constituting only 1% of the total composition of ruby. Most premium rubies have a blood red or pigeon blood shade of red, primarily mined in Myanmar (Burma). However, the affordability of a ruby is also determined based on the cut, the clarity, and the weight of the gem. Ruby is extremely popular since it is a cardinal gem. Ruby is derived from the Latin term “ruber,” meaning red. In Sanskrit, Ruby is called “ratnaraj,” which means the king of all gems. Please make a note that if your ruby jewelry does not have any needle-like rutile inclusions, it is a sign that the stone used in making the jewelry has been treated. Sunrise ruby is considered the most valuable ruby in the world.
Rubies rank nine on the Mohs hardness scale and thus are highly durable. Among the naturally occurring gems, only moissanite and diamond are considered to be harder than ruby. Pure ruby is the most stable form of Al2O3, known as α-alumina. When this crystal has lower levels of chromium, it causes the ruby to show a lighter shade of red. This type of ruby is popularly known as pink ruby. It has a vitreous luster with a colorless streak and lacks cleavage.
All the naturally sourced rubies in the market have some form of imperfections, such as color impurities or needle-like rutile inclusions (known as “silk”). Before cutting, the rough ruby stone is generally heated. Nowadays, most of the rubies used in making jewelry are treated in one or the other form, heat treatment being the most common among all. In the United States, rubies that do not match the set minimum color saturation are referred to as pink sapphires. The difference between pink sapphire and ruby is still debated. Trade organizations like the International Colored Gemstone Association (ICGA) have accepted a multifaceted definition of ruby that encompasses pink and other lighter shades of ruby. Rubies are mined at various locations worldwide, such as Thailand, Pailin and Samlout District of Cambodia, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Australia, Madagascar, Mozambique, Nepal, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Brazil, Colombia, India, Namibia, Japan, and Scotland.
You will find ruby in a lot of historical references. According to Vedic Astrology (the Hindu system of Astrology), ruby is the gemstone for the sun (or the deity Surya). Sun is considered to be the leader of the nine planets. You will also find ruby mentioned many times in the Old Testament of the Bible, in the Book of Exodus and the Book of Proverbs. Historians also claim that rubies were transported along the North Silk Road of China around 200 BC. Lastly, rubies have been a highly-priced possession in Asian countries. They have been used in making the armor, scabbards, and harnesses of noblemen in India and China. In some Asian cultures, it was believed that laying a ruby inside the foundation of the building brings good fortune to the building.
