KING OF ALL GEMS - RATNARAJ
A gemstone praised and loved for its impeccable durability, luster, and vibrant color. Ruby was discovered 2000 years; this mesmerizing colored gemstone has been part of the likes of some of the world's most majestic legends. A lucky charm for many, ancient Kings of India believed ruby symbolized status, power, and glory. One could always find precious rubies embedded in the crowns and swords of Royals during that time.
One of the most valuable variances of the Corundum mineral is the Ruby gemstone (this mineral produces both rubies and sapphires). All reddish corundum is called ruby, and any other color generated by this mineral is called sapphires(Blue, Yellow, Orange, etc.). Ruby's color seamlessly picks up where pink sapphires stop. Only darker red corundum is called Ruby, but the distinction between ruby and pink sapphires is always a matter of opinion. Ruby's color has always been associated with passion, love, and fury, mostly linked with objects of desire and power.
Ruby is one of the hardest 'colored' gemstones right after a diamond and indeed a sought-after gemstone in today's market. Ruby's name came from the Latin word "rubber," which translates into modern-day English as red. It is often found in various reddish tones, ranging from darkish red to pigeon blood red and pinkish red. Ruby obtains its reddish color due to traces of chromium present in its composition. The strength of the red color in a ruby depends on the amount of chromium present. Also, the intensity of chromium can cause more fluorescence in the gemstone, giving the stone a more lively appearance.
Ruby is highly regarded and arguably one of the most important gemstones in the colored stone market today and does command a high price per carat depending on the quality of the gem.
Like all gemstones, there is a source, and for centuries, the most illustrious rubies have come from Burma, present-day Myanmar, the Himalayas, and North Vietnam. Additional large deposits include Mozambique, Thailand, India, Afghanistan, Brazil, Colombia, and Tanzania produce fine rubies.
