Myanmar (Burma), located on the southern border of China, was the world’s main exporter of rubies. This was from the Mogok valley in the north of the country. Although recently good rubies have rarely been found in these mines. This gave way to the area of Mong Hsu, which since the 1990s, has become the world’s largest mining area in the world.
Their first recorded transportations were written in literature of the Silk Road, wherein approx 200BC they were transported along this ‘road’ in the same way as diamonds and other valuable items from China were.
Asian countries have always revered rubies as extremely precious gemstones. They were used as embellishments of armor, scabbards, and harnesses of the noblemen. They were, in fact, so highly regarded in India and China that they were even laid under the foundations of buildings to ensure the good fortune of the buildings above them.
Other Ruby Information
Ruby is a gemstone that is a variety of the mineral corundum, a crystalline form of aluminum oxide that contains traces of iron, titanium, vanadium, and chromium. Rubies and sapphires are the only 2 varieties of mineral corundum varieties considered gem quality.
Rubies are not red due to the iron content, as you would possibly be fooled into thinking, but because of the presence of chromium.
They are one of the 5 main cardinal gems (gems that have been traditionally considered to be precious above all others). The other 4 cardinal gemstones are amethyst, diamond, emerald, and sapphire.
The name ruby originates from the Latin word for red, which is ruber.
Quality of a stone
The quality of a stone is the deciding factor in giving it a final valuation. However, quality is not measured by only one standard. In the industry of valuing stones, the 4C’s are used:
- Color: blood-red or pigeon blood is much more valuable than other rubies with the same qualities in the other 3c’s.
- Cut: while there are no official rules or grades for the cuts of gemstones, the general rule is that the cut needs to reflect light evenly with no darkness or windows.
- Clarity: The highest clarity of a gemstone would be one with absolutely no inclusions. However, this is usually unobtainable, as gemstones are natural.
- Carat: the one we have likely all heard about. This is the physical weight of the gemstone. It will appear different in different stones due to 2 main reasons: the cut. Depending on the cut, that will make the stone appear larger, smaller, deeper, shallower, etc. Secondly, it is their density. While all materials have their own densities, they will also have their own weights for a specific size.
