Color: Different origins offer differences in color intensities. Natural rubies with the most desirable color have a pure red or slightly purplish red color with vivid saturation. More commercial or mass-produced pieces come with heat-treated colors often with orangey to purplish, brownish reds..

Cut: Cut is essential as it can make or break the color of the natural Ruby Stone. Pleochroic in nature, (rubies are purplish-red in one direction and orangey-red in another) cutters must carefully fashion the gemstone to maximize an even color giving a rich, regular red hue.

Treatments: Being one of the most expensive gems known to man, the Ruby is often treated and can go unnoticed. It is important to understand the gemstone you are investing in and ask the correct questions about the history of the gem contributing to a fair price. Natural, unheated gems tend to demand top values, whereas heat treatments, although accepted by the industry, must be disclosed along with clarity enhancements like glass filling and diffusion that in turn lower the ruby price in india .The location a gemstone is mined from plays a big role in determining the color of the ruby. Marble deposits in Myanmar reveal some of the best, most desirable rubies that sport a vivid fluorescent red color. Thai rubies make up a big portion of the gemstones on the market today, tend to be darker, and are mined from a basalt rock contributing to their darker tones. Mozambique and other African rubies come with a nice even color-forming in amphibolites that lend less internal cracks and fissures.

Though no clear event is documented about the origin of rubies, it is widely believed that a sagacious Roman scholar first stated the matchless beauty and miraculous healing properties of the ruby stones in his work. Moreover, there are many stories floating with a crux that a renowned Chinese emperor was ready to put an entire city on stake just to own a ruby gemstone of his desired size and color. If we talk about the origin of the Ruby gemstone, it has been mined in numerous Asian and European countries like Thailand, Cambodia, Brazil, Afghanistan, Japan, Namibia, Colombia, India, and Australia. In the late 1950s, some colossal deposits of red ruby stone were also found in Madagascar, Tanzania, Pakistan, Nepal, Mozambique, and Tajikistan regions.Earlier, the world-famous Mogok valley in the Myanmar region used to be the prime source of unparalleled quality rubies and has given some of the rarest rubies to the world. The newest found mines in Myanmar are located in the Namya region which encloses rubies worth billions. The Pakistan occupied Kashmir region also has deposits of rubies worth a billion dollars but cannot be mined extensively due to a lack of infrastructure and heavy investment. In recent years, the Mozambique region has become the leading producer of top-quality rubies and satiating the demand of ruby stone lovers across the world without any hustle.

Natural rubies have a passionate red that undoubtedly makes a bold statement. Once set in jewelry these resilient gemstones are an ideal fit with a lustrous appearance. Their strong nature at 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness keeps the gemstone free from daily wear and tear.

Burma was really the only main source for rubies for over 800 years, so it is no surprise they have been so popular. There were other places such as Thailand and Cambodia but again these deposits were discovered later. African coloured gemstones were not really known until the late 20th century with Mozambique being the main deposit in the 21st century.

The Mozambique deposit is over 500 million years old whereas the rubies from Burma were formed only 50 million years ago, after the extinction of the dinosaurs, when the tectonic plate movement formed the Himalayas.

Whenever I visit India, I love seeing how jewellery and gemstones are very much part of your heritage and culture. Vibrant colour combinations are everywhere you look, from spices, textiles, enamels, food, there is a vibrancy of life which makes ruby the perfect gemstone of choice. With this growing appreciation though, it will be hard to please everyone for gem quality rubies are very rare.

When buying an unheated ruby, it must always be accompanied by a report from a recognised international laboratory such as SSEF, Gubelin, AGL, GIA, stating it is unheated. But the price difference between heated and unheated is enormous. There is nothing wrong with heated rubies, but if you are buying a ruby as an investment then in my opinion it must be unheated, and you should buy it loose then have it mounted.

Its name, ruby, is the Latin word for red: in fact, until the 1800s when this mineral was properly distinguished and categorised, many types of red stones were called rubies, including garnets.

Ancient cultures used rubies as good luck charms: in ancient Burma, now known as Myanmar, many people believed that if you placed a ruby inside your skin, it made you immune to harm.

In Hindu mythology, the ruby is the stone which represents the Sun: this symbolism remains today, and modern crystal healers believe that rubies harness the potent energy of the fire element.

Although when using the 7 crystal structures system in crystallography, rubies technically have a trigonal crystal structure, when using the favoured 6 crystal structures system, ruby crystals come under the broader category of hexagonal crystal structures.
