Ruby From Burma Myanmar & Rubies From Mozambique


Ruby:


A ruby is a pinkish red to blood-red colored gemstone, a variety of the mineral corundum (aluminium oxide). Ruby is one of the most popular traditional jewelry gems and is very durable.The quality of a ruby is determined by its color, cut, and clarity, which, along with carat weight, affect its value. The brightest and most valuable shade of red, called blood-red or pigeon blood, commands a large premium over other rubies of similar quality. After color follows clarity: similar to diamonds, a clear stone will command a premium.


The significance of natural ruby gemstones is related to the stone's color. Passion, love, and power are just a few words describing the beauty of the stone. Popular as the ''stone of kings,'' these fascinating gemstones have been referred to as the epitome of power and wealth

Burma Ruby From Myanmar


The New Burma Ruby Stone is an incredibly rare and precious gem that has recently been discovered in the jungles of Burma. This deep red stone has a unique hue and lustre, making it highly valued for its beauty and rarity. It is believed to bring good luck, abundance, and prosperity to those who possess it.






A Burmese ruby is a precious gemstone known for its deep, vivid red colour and exceptional quality. These rubies are primarily sourced from Myanmar (formerly Burma), particularly the Mogok Valley (hence the name "Mogok ruby"), often dubbed the "Land of Rubies."

The finest ruby deposits come from Burma(Myanmar). The two mines famous for these spectacular red gemstones are the Mogok and Mong Hsu mines






Burmese rubies are celebrated for their intense, pigeon-blood red hue, considered the most desirable in the gemstone world. Exceptional clarity: They typically exhibit excellent transparency and minimal inclusions, enhancing their visual appeal.




Why are Burmese rubies so valuable?


Burmese rubies are also known to produce the finest color quality in rubies—the coveted “pigeon's blood red”—a vivid pure-red hue with no overtones of orange or brown. Burmese rubies with a natural pigeon's blood red color are so rare that it can take one miner months to a year to find even just on.



Ruby From Mozambique


The first confirmed sources of gem-quality ruby were found in northern Mozambique in the Niassa National Reserve in 2008. Near Ruambeze, in Cabo Delgado Province, cabochon-grade rubies were reportedly discovered in the early 1990s, according to officials from the Lichinga mining office. This deposit reportedly produced the cabochon-grade material reported in G&G in 1991. The material was heavily fractured and often contained considerable iron staining, obscuring the bodycolor






The names of these terms come from the names of the most productive mines in the Montepuez area. Maninge Nice rubies have brilliant color, intense saturation and strong fluorescence. But they also tend to be flat in shape and heavily-fractured, yielding smaller rubies when cut.


The existence of rubies in Montepuez, in northeast Mozambique, became widely known in 2009. Today, the Montepuez ruby mine in Cabo Delgado province covers 33,600 hectares of one of the most significant ruby deposits in the world






Mozambique Ruby Stone: Mozambique, a country in southeastern Africa, emerged as a significant source of rubies in the late 2000s. Its deposits (particularly in Montepuez) have yielded some remarkable small-sized rubies with rich red colouration and exceptional clarity
