Burma Ruby Cabochon, 8.73 ct
This gorgeous natural ruby from Burma (Myanmar) gives new meaning to the name “red giant,” those very large stars with a reddish color. Since fine-quality Burmese rubies over one carat are very rare, at 8.73 carats, this one is out of this world! Not only is this Burmese ruby’s arresting deep-red hue all-natural, with no indications of heat treatment to enhance it, the color is well-saturated throughout the stone. The cabochon cut with its smooth polished surface acts like a window, allowing you to see the twinkling within. Have it designed into an outstanding jewel to give it true “rock star” status.
This ruby is certified as a Burmese ruby with no heat treatment by 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.
