Comment(s).

¹. Ruby (from the Latin ‘ruber’, meaning ‘red’) is the name given to chromium bearing corundum, which is the same mineral which gives rise to sapphires. It is composed of the gas oxygen and the light metal aluminium. Ruby has a long historical connection with all cavillations that encountered this marvellous gem. “The legend and lore of Ruby and Sapphire are quaint, like that of most gems. The lucky owner of a fine Ruby was said to be assured of a life lived in peace and concord with all men; neither his land nor his rank could be taken from him, and his house and garden could be saved from damaged by tempests.  According to the Judaeo-Christian view, Ruby, the natal stone of July, is the most precious of the twelve stones God created when he created all creatures, and this Lord of Gems was placed on Aaron's neck by gods command. The high esteem placed on Ruby is further indicated by the names applied to it in Sanskrit. These were ‘ratnaraj’, which may be translated as king of precious stones, and ‘ratnanayaka’, leader of precious stones. The Hindu peoples describe the glowing hues of the ruby as an inextinguishable fire which burned within the stone. Ruby was said to preserve the health of the wearer, for it removed evil thoughts. Although associated with passion it was also thought to control amorous desires and reconcile disputes. The colour of ruby is due to a trace chromic oxide, which enters the crystal structure by a small-scale replacement of some of the aluminium atoms. This is known as isomorphous replacement. The amount, about 1 to 3%, determines the depth of colour, but the presence of iron in the ferric state also modifies the tint. The finest rubies will be strongly fluorescent red. Such stones often contain extremely fine particles which serve to scatter the light on to all the facets” (Robert Webster, ‘Gems. Their Sources, Descriptions and Identification’, fifth edition, 1994). “With ruby, the intensity of the red colour is the primary factor in determining the value. The ideal stone displays an intense, rich crimson without being too light or too dark. The finest rubies display colour similar to that of a red traffic light. There is a tendency for the market to favour stones of the intense red-red colour. Certainly, the highest prices are paid for these. But do not overlook the slightly less intense shades. Such gems have a brightness missing in there more saturate brethren and often look better in the low lighting that one typically wears fine jewellery. Like a beautiful person, rubies come in many shapes, the preference for each which is a matter of personal taste” (Richard Hughes, ‘Ruby & Sapphire, A Collector’s Guide’, 2013).
