Featured today is a natural unheated treatment free ruby from Mozambique. The oval shaped gem has a weight of 1.07 carats and an appealing deep vibrant reddish pink color and has been set in 22-Karat gold as a Sun talisman. The natural ruby has fantastic clarity and good lustre. Just have a look and at the video and see how pleasing color and a good cut sets this Ruby miles apart from the rest.
Natural ruby or manik/ manikya is the gemstone of planet Sun/ Surya. It is the simha rashi ratna or singha rashi ratna. In vedic astrology, the sign of Leo/ Simha is ruled by Sun.
The manik gemstone or ruby gemstone is one with intense, fiery Sun energies. We strongly recommend that an individual should get a proper gemstone recommendation before deciding to wear a ruby.
Also be very wary of sellers trying to palm off random goods as Mogok rubies from Burma. Please bear in mind that the Burmese ruby is invariably imperial pigeon blood red in color. Also, a natural untreated, unenhanced genuine Burmese ruby no matter how small will not retail less than USD 6000 – 7000 per carat. The price only increases phenomenally as the gem’s assessment on the 4 Cs scores better and better.
In the 3rd edition of the book, Colored Gemstones- the author Antoinette Matlins, who also is the author of the classic Jewelry and Gems: The buying Guide writes in the preface on page xiii:
“Prices for exceptionally fine, untreated Ruby from Burma( also called Myanmar) have increased by more than 75% since the first edition of this book( This is the 2010 edition), and today such a rare gem can easily cost $60,000 for a two carat stone. ”
We have earlier done comprehensive reports on the world Ruby situation and as usual the prices have gone up by 30% compared to 6 months earlier when we did the report. That report can be accessed at
Now that you know the actual situation of the World’s Ruby Market- Never encourage misnomers and misleading terms such as Old Mine Burma Ruby or New Mine Burma Ruby. You have tangible information about pricing and hence please don’t be lured into purchasing inferior quality goods labelled as New Mine or Old Mine.
This is where the ruby from African nations like Mozambique and Tanzania comes into play – it has pleasing attributes and is quite affordable in comparison to the exotic Burmese rubies, which are quite elusive even to the markets! Even though new deposits are found in Mozambique the prices for really fine gems some of which( as the one featured today) are equal to the beauty of the Burmese ruby the prices for Natural Unheated Gem Quality Ruby will continue to rise.
