RUBY

One of the most sought after gemstones in the world are rubies. Rubies are made from Corundum. It should be noted that the mineral corundum creates two distinct gemstones, the first is the Ruby, the second being Sapphires. Sapphires come in a variety of beautiful colors, however only red Corundum is considered a Ruby. Since natural occurring rubies are very rare and extremely rare in large sizes over 3 carats, they can demand prices higher than diamonds. The Ruby is one of the most beautiful gemstones created by nature. It comes in either a pinkish red or deep, rich red color. High quality rubies have a wonderful hue to them and are termed “silk” rubies. Rubies are perhaps one of the oldest known gemstones to man. They have been revered since the beginning of time and possessed for their beautiful qualities. Corundum, which Rubies are made from is created from aluminum, iron, small bits of chromium and titanium. It is usually written scientifically as Al2O3. It should be noted that Corundum is one of the hardest substances known to man and is second in hardness only to Diamonds. Rubies were worn by kings and aristocrats since the dawn of time. Ruby comes from the Latin word ruber which means red. It was said to ward off sickness and to make one invulnerable to defeat. During ancient times it was said that those that possess Rubies will never have their wealth or belongings taken from them. Today, Rubies are used for the highest quality jewelry pieces and can be extremely beautiful in rings, charms, earrings and bracelets.
