IT IS COMMON PRACTICE IN THE RUBY INDUSTRY TO HEAT TREAT AND GLASS FILL FRACTURE LINES. WE TREAT OUR RUBIES BUT WE DO NOT HEAVILY GLASS FILL OUR RUBIES, ONLY RUBIES WITH FRACTURE LINES DO WE GLASS TREATMENT. THE GEM OF LOVE. A VARIETY OF MINING AREAS PRODUCE A GREAT DIVERSITY OF RED SHADES. THE MONGOK VALLEY IN BURMA IS FAMOUS FOR ITS ‘PIGEON BLOOD’ OR PINK RED COLOUR. FROM THAILAND AND CAMBODIA IS A STRONG DARK RED.  ACCORDING TO ANCIENT LORE, MANY BELIEVE THAT MYSTICAL POWERS LIE WITHIN THIS INTENSELY COLOURED RED GEM. IT INTENSIFIES EMOTIONS OF LOVE,  PASSION, COURAGE AND CONFIDENCE. A RUBY ENGAGEMENT RING IS GIVEN TO EXPRESS PASSION AND A PROMISE OF THE HEART. FURTHERMORE THE WEARING OF A RUBY ASSURES A LIFE LIVED IN PEACE. THE RICHNESS OF THE COLOUR, THE BRILLIANCE OF THE REFLECTED LIGHT AND THE CLARITY OF THE GEM DETERMINE THE QUALITY OF A RUBY.
