Ruby comes from the Latin word is called the red, "rufus". The beauty, rarity and historical mystery of the Rubies is undeniable. Ruby's July birthday, the Gemstone of Bak and the traditional 15th and 40th anniversary gifts.
The oldest record of Rubin's mining over 2500 years ago, the historic mystery and beauty of Rubies is as colorful as the legends and lords surrounding the richest jewels.
During the course of history, it was recognized that many believed that the mystical forces are hiding in this highly colored gem. The fiery, crimson-colored Rubies has generated many civilizations by associating passion, love and romance. Rubies were thought to provide wisdom, health and luck gambling.
We have mentioned in Sanskrit texts, the ancient Hindus so enchanted the color of the Rubies that Ratnaraj was called "the King of the Gem". Ancient Hindus thought the color of the rubies had created a harmonious fire that burned inside the pearl, with a long life and still boiling water!
Like Sanskrit texts, Biblical references to Ruby (all red gems collectively called Carbuncle) are mentioned as the most precious gems. In the King James Version of the Bible, Ruby (Carbuncle) is mentioned four times: Exodus 28:17
And you put in the stones with four rows of stones: the first row will be Sardius, Topaz and Carbuncle: the first line.
And they made four layers of stones: the first line was Sardius, Topaz and Carbuncle: this was the first line.
You were in Eden, in the garden of God; all your gems were yours, Sardius, Topaz, Diamond, Beryl, Onyx, Jasper, Sapphire, Emerald, Carbuncle, and Gold: on the day you were created.
And I will make thy window, and thy hand, with pleasant stones. Interestingly, in the Old Testament, the "rubies" gemstone could indeed be Spinel or Garnet. By the 18th century when chemical testing improved, most of the red gemstones were called Ruby. Indeed, many of the jewelery of the European crown has been identified as Spinel or Garnet since then. For example, the Black Prince Ruby, proud of the crown of the British imperial state, is actually a red Spinel!
Ancient Ceylon Legends (Modern Sri Lanka's Day) tells the death of the demon King Ravana. They thought that after his death his blood had been drilled in Rubin and had an intense red color.
The Indians believed that a delicate Ruby offerings were rejected as a great commander during the rebirth.
Some cultures argued that Ruby's blood-colored color protects the wearer from injuries. Indeed, ancient Burmese warriors thought that when a Ruby was inserted, the skin had a mystical power that made them unobtrusive in the battle.
In the 13th century, the revised explorer Marco Polo wrote that Kublai Kahn, the Emperor of Chinese Mongol once offered a whole city for Ruby, the size of a man's fingers.
Because of its fluorescence properties, a giant Ruby once illuminated the entire hall in a Chinese emperor's palace!
In the Middle Ages, the Rubies were thought to contain prophetic powers. They believed that Ruby could warn the owners of disasters by deepening their colors.
Like many "allokromatic" (other colored) precious stones whose colors come from trace elements, the rubies are the same as the sapphires. Rubies and Sapphires consist of minerals known from corundum. The crystalline form of alumina, known as Corundum, comes from Tamil, Hindi and Sanskrit with three origins for Rubin and Sapphire, Kurundam, Kurund or Kuruvinda.
Did you know rubies are rarer than diamonds? Over the past 60 years, only a month has passed without a new Diamond deposit being discovered. By contrast, the Ruby will be found only in the competent world of mines.
Did you know rubies are more expensive than diamonds? The 16-carat Ruby, sold in Sotheby, New York, October 1988, stunned $ 3,630,000! Secondly, for hard diamonds only, rubies are one of the hardest precious stones and no splits, breaks rarely occur. With the fact that the Ruby comes in many shapes and sizes, it fits perfectly with all kinds of jewelery.
While color preferences are subjective, the best rubies have an intense, almost red-electrical effect due to fluorescence. In coloring Rubi, color is the most important factor. While cutting and size (fine rubies more than 3 carats is very rare) is also important, transparency is secondary. Why is this? The rubies colored by chromium and other trace elements developed centuries ago in the depths of the earth. Since very few rubies have crystallized uninterruptedly, a lot of small irregularities (inclusions) are a feature of a line. In the absence of mistakes, inclusions are a hallmark of credibility that captures the natural connection of the gemstone with the Earth.
Microscopic rutile inclusions, commonly known as "silk", are the normal features of the Rubies. If evenly distributed, a small amount of "silk" increases the beauty of Ruby by creating a soft, uniform light distribution or sparking.
Asterism or "star effect" is a reflection that looks like two or more light strips on a pearl surface. This rare phenomenon can be found in both rubies and sapphires.
Since Rubies come in many colors and sizes, it is very important that your personal preference be your primary concern. But what's the difference between Royal and Majestic Ruby? "Royal" refers to size (2 carats or more) and "Majestic" refers to quality (color and purity). However, if we call a "Majestic" jewel, we do not suggest that this is the best quality anywhere, simply rubbing our Madagascar Ruby at a height at a deep impenetrable jungle. The only way to get to the Ruby Mines near the mining village, the Moramanga helicopter or an exhausting long day tour (11 hours) is a muddy flight of dense mountainous rain forests in Madagascar's town of Andilamena. The relatively new deposit was found in July 2004 by Majestic Ruby.
In addition to Madagascar, we export Ruby from Vietnam, Tanzania, Kenya, Sri Lanka, China and of course Thailand. However, strict environmental standards and exhaustion reduced Thai mining.
About 80% of the world's rubies are traveling in Chanthaburi, Thailand, the artisans are the first to choose the best examples. Ruby is used when we deliver all kinds of beautiful jewelery, and the pearl of love and passion, heart-shaped rubies, is difficult to withstand. Next time you need some passion in your life,
