Everyone argues where the color-line is drawn for a stone to be a "Pink Sapphire" or a "Ruby". Typically speaking, Rubies are red corundum, and all other colors in the corundum family are Sapphires. But where does pink end and red begin?! It's madness. Prior to the beginning of the 20th century ALL corundums of a red color (including pinks) were referred to as Rubies. Then came this silly confusing terminology to differentiate "Red Rubies" from "Pink Sapphires." Luckily, today, the Gemological Institute of America has eliminated the distinction, so both terms are considered correct.
So, the bottom line of my little rant is this: Red or Pink Sapphire or Ruby, WHO CARES?! They are the same mineral. The shading/intensity of their color is only dependent on how much chromium is present. More chromium=more red. All equally beautiful. There.
