It is considered the stone of the month of July, while in the USA ruby is the perfect gift for a couple's 15th and 40th wedding anniversary.
Its special and intense color make it a gem of exceptional beauty which, since ancient times, was widely used in the manufacture of jewelry. Its strikingly red color is due to the presence of large amounts of chromium. Although in the past, most rubies came from the Mogok Valley, they now come from the Monchou area but also from countries such as Madagascar and Australia.
The value of rubies is determined mainly by their color, but also by their clarity, which depends by the inclusions contained in the gemstone.
