Finding the Best Burmese Rubies
The best Burmese rubies (as with other top gemstones) exhibit a glow that is a combination of natural microscopic inclusions an a strong reaction the UV light. Incredibly gem examples, feel like one is staring into a a deep pool of endless red highlighted by deep pink flashes.
Important Burmese rubies must be untreated by heat or oil, as that drastically changes the provenance and value of the gemstone.
Typically this gemstone must be certified by The American Gem Laboratory or S.S.E.F. from Switzerland. A G.I.A. certification is not sufficient for an important Burma Ruby.
