History & Origin:

Ruby is a variety of Corundum that forms in the hexagonal crystal system. It is closely related to Sapphire, which is the blue (& sometimes even black, orange, yellow, green or purple) variety of Corundum. Mentioned as far back as biblical times, its famous, deep-red colour has long been associated as a sign of power & nobility throughout cultures across the globe. The pinkish to scarlet-coloured Ruby owes its vibrancy to Chromium or Titanium Oxide inclusions. Named after the Latin word meaning “red", Ruby can be found in Myanmar, Afghanistan, Australia, Cambodia, India, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand, the United States, & Vietnam.
