Medium Round Cut Purple Star ruby. The star shows up in the middle when the light hits the dome of the stone perfectly. This was extremely hard to photograph.

This is a natural, beautiful deep purple Star Ruby. I have recently found a very good source for this material

This is NOT dyed, color enhanced - or heat treated.

This stone would be perfect for a ring.

Star Ruby shows, a six-rayed star that shimmers over the surface of the stone when it is moved. Ruby is red corundum, all other color varieties of corundum being referred to as sapphire. Corundum is the second hardest substance on the Mohs scale, with a rating of nine. Diamond tops that scale with a ten. That hardness combined with the rich color and silky shine make fine rubies so valuable and secure them a place in the group of four so-called "precious" stones, along with diamond, emerald and sapphire.

Ruby is named after the Latin word "ruber" for red.

Rubies range in color from pinkish to orangey and purplish and brownish red, depending on the chromium and iron content of the stone. The most desirable color is the so-called "pigeon’s blood," a pure red with a hint of blue, only found in the mines of Myanmar.

Ruby is one of the most expensive gems, large rubies being rarer than comparable diamonds. Ruby is the birthstone for those who are born in July. Ruby is also used to celebrate a couple's 15th and 40th anniversaries.


The healing powers of gems remain a controversial issue, but are mentioned for centuries by healers, shamans and medicine men. Whether it's a fact or a placebo effect doesn't matter, if it helps. The safest approach is to wear the gemstone in skin contact to the troubled part of the body. Ruby is said to be a general health protector and, in particular, to be good for backache and toenail problems.
