Different shades of Ruby

Ruby is the July birthstone and it is the stone of the Sun in Vedic astrology. Rubies are among the most prized gemstones, often referred to as the “King of Gemstones”. Clarity, cut and carat weight also affect their value and are revered for their beauty and reputed metaphysical properties. The finest color of the birthstone for July is a deep intense red with a hint of purple, called “pigeon’s blood” in the trade.
In various cultures, rubies are seen as symbols of wealth, prosperity, and good fortune. Some believe wearing a ruby can attract opportunities for success and abundance. Known as a stone of passion, rubies are often linked to love and romance and are associated with qualities like courage, strength and leadership. It bestows intelligence and knowledge and ensures long life and cures heart diseases.
Myanmar (formerly Burma) historically produced some of the finest rubies, including those with the prized pigeon’s blood color. However, other sources include Thailand, Sri Lanka, Madagascar and various African countries. The value of rubies is primarily determined by their color, clarity, size, and origin. Hence, highly saturated and bright red rubies with minimal inclusions command the highest prices.
