Ruby


Ruby: 'rü - bE - A precious stone that is
a red corundum

Color: red
Mined: most notable stones are mined
in Burma (Myamar), but also in South
East Asia, Africa and several states in
the U.S.

Moh's Hardness: 9
Birthstone: July (modern birthstone),
July (traditional birthstone), July
(mystical birthstone), July and December
(Ayurvedic birthstone)
Rubies are of the same family,
corundum, as sapphires, but are red in
color due to small amounts of chromium
in their interior. Because of the lack of
iron in Burmese rubies, which can
darken and cloud their appearance,
Burmese rubies are the most beautiful
and most expensive, though rubies are
found in many countries around the
world.
