紅寶石可說是最寅貴的一種，每卡拉價僅次于最稀有的彩色鉆石。紅寶石在東方一直擁有至尊無上的地位，最好的證明是梵文中記載的紅寶石別名：—個是「Ratnaraj」，另一個是「Ratnanayaka」，意思分別為「寶石之王」和「珍貴寶石之首」。而早于公元前1110年，Marbodus在其著作《liber de lapidibus》中已指出紅寶是「寶石中的王者」。書中有這樣的描述：「當上帝創造所有生物的同時也創造了十二種寶石，當中最竇貴的就是紅寶石。」產自緬甸的紅寶擁有傳說中的艷紅色彩，所以在高級珠竇的歷史上一直都占有重要席位。
Ruby is the most expensive one, and the price per cara is second only to the rarest color DIA. Ruby has always held the supreme status in the East. The best proof is the ruby alias recorded in Sanskrit: one is "Ratnaraj" and the other is "Ratnanayaka", which means "king of precious stones" and "head of precious stones" respectively. As early as 1110 BC, Marbodus pointed out that Hongbao was "the king of precious stones" in his book liber de lapidibus. There is such a description in the book: "When God created all living things, he also created twelve kinds of precious stones, among which the most expensive is ruby. Hongbao, which is produced in Myanmar, has a legendary brilliant red color, so it has always occupied an important position in the history of advanced Zhudou.
If we want to further explain why ruby has been sought after for hundreds of years, we must first understand ruby itself. Ruby belongs to a kind of mineral named corundum, while ruby from Myanmar has a unique bright blood-red color because it contains chromium, and it also has red fluorescence, which makes the gem look like burning coal, and it can emit eternal fire from it.
This ruby original stone, the rubbings hardness of this ruby is the ninth grade, only DIA is above it. Its high hardness is an important advantage as a gem. Pure ruby represents passion, desire and power. Legend has it that people who wear rubies will have a happy love, a harmonious family and a long and healthy life. The ancient Burmese warriors loved to stab a small hole in their body and embed a ruby to keep them invulnerable. For hundreds of years, he has been one of the most precious gemstones. It is recognized that the best ruby producing area in the world is Magu, Myanmar, which has a history of producing rubies for thousands of years and has always maintained its position of producing the best sample of rubies in the world. Because of its chemical composition with more chromium and less iron, it gives off red fluorescence under UV light source, i.e. sunlight and most lights, which makes the red color of its whole body twinkle more brightly. The interior of each gem is unique, and it is inextricably linked as light as fire, which is the proof of great geological changes. For pure natural rubies without any heat treatment, it is very precious and rare if they exceed 5 carats. In Magu mining area, the possibility of producing such important large rough stones is decreasing year by year.
Orientals regard red as an auspicious color, and rubies naturally become auspicious things in their eyes. In the Qing Dynasty of China, princes and even high-ranking officials set rubies on their official hats as the difference between official positions; In Myanmar, the Ruiguang Gold Pagoda built in 585 BC is inlaid with more than 2,000 rubies; Ruby has been an indispensable ornament in the crowns of royal families all over the world since ancient times. Most natural rubies come from Asia (Myanmar, Thailand and Sri Lanka), and are also produced in Africa and Australia. The world-famous ruby mine comes from Magu Valley, Myanmar, which has been mined for thousands of years. Its characteristic is that the crimson inclined object in ruby refracts red ultraviolet rays to every cutting surface of ruby, which makes it emit average and brilliant red color and sparkle.
Ruby can change from a colorless ore to a brilliant red gem after a long period of earth crust transfer pressure and baptism by the sun's heat. After thousands of years of continuous mining, ruby has become quite rare. At present, this ruby is only rare, and it has high investment and collection value.
