Ruby

 

Ruby is a variety of the gems species corundum. It is harder than any natural gemstone except diamond, which means a Ruby is durable enough for everyday wear. Fine-quality Ruby is extremely rare, and the color of the gem is most important to its value. The most prized color is a medium or medium dark vivid red or slightly purplish red. If the gem is too light or has too much purple or orange, it will be called a fancy-color sapphire.
