Item Information

Dimensions (mm) not provided
Weight (carats) not provided
Certified Gemstone
Filled Cavities or Fissure/Cobalt



All natural rubies have imperfections in them, including color impurities and inclusions of rutile needles known as "silk". Gemologists use these needle inclusions found in natural rubies to distinguish them from synthetics, simulants, or substitutes. Usually the rough stone is heated before cutting. Almost all rubies today are treated in some form, with heat treatment being the most common practice. However, rubies that are completely untreated but still of excellent quality command a large premium.

A lovely large gem !
