Burmese rubies are widely considered among the rarest of all gemstones. For centuries, Burma has been associated with the world's finest rubies, though by edict of the King himself, the finest stones were never allowed to leave the kingdom. In addition, due to political unrest, the country's borders were closed in 1962, further restricting the trade and increasing the rarity of these magnificent gemstones.

Legendary Gemstones...Rubies and Sapphires

For thousands of years, rubies and sapphires have been revered for their beauty and perceived mystical powers. It was thought that rubies held the key to serenity and peace and could secure eternal love and happiness. The ancient Persians believed that the earth itself rested upon a great sapphire whose reflection caused the sky to be blue. Rubies and sapphires continue to captivate with their unparalleled beauty, and quality stones have become excellent investments.

Judging by their distinct color, it may be hard to believe that rubies and sapphires are actually the same stone, identical in all characteristics except color. Both are corundum and each derives their rich color from tiny amounts of different chemical impurities. These amazing corundum minerals are second only to diamonds in hardness, and in many cases, are a much better value.
