    The Color Red - The Allure of a Ruby | Star Gemstones

    Natural Ruby of 1.13 Carats Gemstoneuniverse


    Star Gemstones, Color is the essence of life. It’s magic conjured up by the play of light with elements of nature! And because human beings use faculty of sight that differentiates among things in a large way by sight, color is fundamental to evoking response – love, dislike, attraction, ambivalence and much more. The world of colored gemstones is fascinating for precisely the same reason. It’s the enticing color, a distinct personality of the gem that makes it stand apart!

    Rubies have fascinated human beings for a long time now – a star gemstone, which our ancestors viewed in awe as they believed that a fire burned within it! Intense deep red – the ruby is a splendorous gem. Ruby is the mineral Corundum, which is aluminum oxide (Al2O3). Aluminum is displaced by chromium (Cr 3+) anything between 1-3 percent of its total amount in the mineral.

    The richer the color more is the premium commanded by the gem! The best rubies of the world are without a shadow of doubt from Burma with the imperial pigeon blood color. However, for their relative unavailability and prohibitive prices (in what is up for grabs) the newer treasures of Africa seem to have arrived just in time. Among the African rubies, the ones coming from Mozambique and Tanzania have better clarity and richer color.

    However, how do you know that what you are wearing is categorized in the gem world as a ruby or a pink sapphire. The saturation of color is the key here. Rubies command a much greater price than a pink sapphire (pink corundum, after all, sapphire base mineral is corundum too!) There is deep resistance to adopting the color saturation index for many gems hitherto classified, as ruby will just end up as fancy color pink sapphires!
