Ruby is a red variety of the corundum mineral. Sapphire, the other variety of corundum, includes all colors of corundum aside from red. In essence, ruby is a red sapphire, since ruby jewelry and sapphire jewelry are almost identical in all properties except for color. The color of ruby varies from bPageBottom.html red to dark reddish-brown. Ruby is distinguished and recognized by all for its fiery red color. Beside its color, it is a most desirable gem due to its hardness, luster, durability and rarity. It has a Moh's hardness of 9. Transparent rubies of large sizes are even rarely available than diamonds. Transparent, flawless rubies values much more than all other gems (except for deeply colored "fancy diamonds"). Semi-opaque or opaque rubies have little value, even if they display asterism.
The most preferred color by everyone is a deep blood red ruby with a slightly bluish hue. This type of ruby is known as "Burmese Ruby" or "Pigeon's Blood Ruby".

These labratory grown gems possess the identical chemical and physical properties as the natural gem and have flawless beauty and perfect color.

Which makes the lab grown ruby jewelry a wonderful and affordable alternative.
For years and years, the ruby has been considered one of the most valuable gemstones on Earth.
