Burma (Miramar) is the most important source of ruby today. Other producers are the island of Sri Lanka, Thailand, Kampuchea, India and Australia. Ruby (from the Latin meaning ‘red’) is a pink to blood-red gemstone quality corundum. Ruby’s red colour is caused by the presence of chromium and without this element other varieties of gem-quality corundum are called sapphires. Ruby jewellery is treasured because ruby is considered one of the four precious stones, together with the sapphire, the emerald, and the diamond. Ruby is a semi-precious gemstone for the zodiac sign of Gemini (May 22-June 21).
