GEMOLOGY
Ruby is the red variety of the mineral corundum. When corundum occurs in any other color it is referred to as a sapphire. Beside for its bright color, it is a most desirable gem due to its hardness, durability, luster, and rarity. Ruby has been the world’s most valued gemstone for thousands of years. Rubies are today still more valuable and rare than the top quality colorless diamonds. The per-carat price of ruby can also increase dramatically as size increases, especially for better-quality stones. Color is the most significant factor affecting a ruby’s value. The finest ruby has a pure, vibrant red to slightly purplish red color. As the color becomes too orangy or more purplish, the ruby moves down the quality scale. The highest-quality rubies have vivid color saturation.
