This is a BEAUTIFUL GENUINE natural red RUBY that has been clarity enhanced by way of leaded glass. It is a 8x6 mm emerald cut stone set in solid sterling silver. There is no chain included but I have some reasonably priced chains in my shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/EmBound?section_id=6379948 if you'd like to add one to your purchase for no additional shipping charge.

Clarity enhanced (fissure filled) rubies have really hit the market recently, I suspect due to the ruby trade embargo with Myanmar, a once major supplier of fine color rubies. I'm beginning to see these treated rubies in malls. While sales associates tend to be somewhat educated about the care that goes into emeralds (also commonly clarity enhanced except with oils or resins), I'm finding many don't know about the fissure filled rubies they're selling. Just like with emeralds, I would not recommend putting this ruby in an ultrasonic cleaner but it should be stable enough for chemical cleaners and everyday wear. If you choose to have the ruby remounted one day, make sure you let your jeweler know it is clarity enhanced so they can take proper precautions to preserve the integrity of your ruby.

The benefits of fissure filled rubies--aside from making an otherwise included gem appear more clear, is it keeps the cost down considerably while still providing you with a beautiful genuine ruby. Also it can provide a ruby with a bit more durability than the ruby would have had otherwise.

Let me know if you have any questions :).
