July Birthstone: The Origin of the Ruby

The ruby is a variety of the mineral corundum (the same mineral as sapphires) and the element chromium is responsible for the beautiful and passionate color red. However, chromium also creates cracks inside the structure of the ruby, therefore a perfect ruby is very rare. The appearance and shade of the color red depends on the origin of the gemstone. The three main regions where rubies are found are Burma (now known as Myanmar), Thailand and Africa.

 

For centuries, the finest rubies were mined in Mogok Valley, Burma. Burmese rubies are bright red and have a fluorescent quality. Rubies are also mined in Thailand. Even though rubies from Thailand are known to have excellent clarity, they tend to have a brownish red tint. And, they also don’t have the fluorescent quality of the rubies from Burma. To improve the color, most rubies from Thailand are heat treated to achieve that perfect red color.

 

Rubies are also mined in Africa (including Madagascar, Tanzania and Mozambique). Rubies from Africa tend to be dark red with a purple tint, except for a small number of perfect red rubies found in Mozambique. While African rubies are of great quality, to improve the color, some are heat treated as well.
