What is a Ruby?

When the word 'ruby' is mentioned, most people can envision the deep red gemstone with pink and purple hues. In fact, a ruby is a variety of a mineral called corundum. The stone also contains traces of the element chromium, which is what creates the distinctive red color. The name ruby is therefore not randomly assigned but comes from the Latin word 'ruber,' meaning red.


As with other gemstones, a ruby is evaluated based on its color. The more blood-red the stone is, the rarer and therefore more valuable it is considered. The same applies to clarity, cut, and carat, which are also deemed important assessment factors for determining the value of a ruby.


The ruby is also known as the 'Queen of Gemstones.' A nickname that stems from the fact that the gemstone is evaluated by the same criteria as a diamond and is thus one of the most coveted gemstones.
