Antique Burma Ruby, Emerald Cut, 2.79 CT
This exceptional natural Burmese ruby from the Art Deco period combines the most sought-after qualities in the gemstone, particularly a magnificent color and excellent clarity. Its saturated red color, spared exposure to heat treatment, is due to a combination of well-balanced trace elements in the stone, characteristic of the finest rubies from Burma (Myanmar). The purity of its crystal, meanwhile, on full display in an antique emerald cut, makes it one of the rarest minerals on Earth. This mix of features makes this Burmese ruby a world-class ruby specimen worthy of its prestigious origin.
This ruby is certified as a Burmese ruby with no heat treatment by the SSEF and the American Gemological Laboratories.
For centuries, the Mogok Stone Tract of Burma, otherwise known as modern-day Myanmar, has provided the world with its finest rubies. Burmese rubies are renowned for their clarity, silk inclusions that give them a soft glow, and, of course, their vibrant color—a combination of purplish-red body color and fiery red fluorescence, with the most coveted called “pigeon’s blood.” Today, with most of the alluvial deposits in the region depleted, Burmese rubies are among the most valuable and prestigious of all gemstones.
