Product: Star Ruby
Size: 8 to 17 Carats
Star ruby is a rare and natural variety of ruby gemstone that exhibits a star-like visual effect (called Asterism) when seen under single light source. It is regarded as a strong healing gemstone and worn to reduce stress, gain inner peace and maintain physical health.
Ruby is the red variety of the mineral corundum. When corundum occurs in any other color it is referred to as a sapphire. Rubies are mined primarily in Burma, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Madagascar, India, Afghanistan and Tajikistan. More important than the gem’s locality of origin is the actual color and clarity of the stone. Rubies that are the most valuable will be pure red in color, without any modifying tones of violet, orange or brown and are transparent in clarity. A fine ruby is among the most expensive of any stone in the world.
