Morphology of the Ruby
The Ruby is a red Corindone, an aluminum oxide mineral with chromium inclusions.
The name of this stone comes from the Latin word “ruber”, that means “red”.
Ruby is a coloured variety of Corundum, a crystal formed by the aluminum oxide.
Its characteristic colouring in the red tone is due to chromium, which is present in some corundums, while in the brown shades of some rubies it is due to the presence of iron.
The origin of the ruby is conventionally assigned to Burma, in its Mogok Valley, even today the ruby is mined in the north of this country, nicknamed “The Ladies’ Ruby”.
Other mining places are Afghanistan, Cambodia, China, India, Madagascar, Kenya, Mozambique, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand and Vietnam.
