Ruby is the red variety of the mineral corundum one of the hardest minerals on earth of which the sapphire is also a variety. Pure corundum is colorless however as result of slight traces of elements such as chrome, iron or titanium corundum comes in various colors.
These gemstones have excellent hardness. On the Mohs scale they score 9 and are therefore second only to the diamond.
Only red corundum is a ruby all other colors are sapphires. There is a close relationship between the ruby and the sapphire.
Ruby the magnificent red variety of the corundum family consists of aluminium oxide and chrome as well as very fine traces of other elements. In really fine colors and good clarity this gemstone occurs only very rarely in the world’s mines. Somewhat paradoxically, it is actually the coloring element chrome which is responsible for this scarcity. Although chrome is responsible for the lovely color of the ruby it also causes fissures and cracks inside the crystals. As a result only very few crystals have good enough conditions to grow to perfect rubies.
Metaphysical qualities of Ruby
Red for ruby. Ruby-red. The most important thing about this precious stone is its color. The name ‘ruby’ is from the Latin word ‘rubens’, meaning ‘red’. The red of the ruby is incomparable: warm and fiery. Two magical elements are associated with the symbolism of this color: fire and blood, implying warmth and life for mankind. So ruby-red is not just any old color, it is a hot, passionate, powerful color. Like no other gemstone the ruby is the perfect way to express powerful feelings. Instead of symbolising a calm affection, a ring set with a precious ruby bears witness to that passionate love that people feel for each other.
