Why Burmese Ruby is considered as best Ruby gemstone

Why Burmese Ruby is considered as best Ruby gemstone

08 Jun, 2022 | Gemstone | Gem Selection

Ruby is a beautiful gemstone. The Burmese ruby gemstone is famous for its color, cutting, and treatments. Ruby's crimson hue is one of its most unusual properties. This hue is stunning. Ruby has several variants. How can you tell which ruby is best? Burmese Ruby gemstones are uncommon and costly and regarded as the finest Rubies. 

Colors range from pink and red to pigeon blood-red. Beauty, durability, and rarity make these rubies highly appreciated. Rubies have been popular for centuries, and Burma's mining records date from 500 years. Perhaps that's why they're so popular among gemstones. Burmese Rubies' striking hue gives them prominence and desirability. The value of these rubies depends on their quality and size.

Ruby properties

Burmese Ruby has a Mohs hardness of 9 and a stunning hue. Specific gravity is 4.00, and refractive index is 1.76-1.78. Burmese Ruby is 0.008. Natural Burmese rubies above 1 carat in size are rare. This rarity is why stones are so expensive.


Burmese rubies aren't always perfect. Color and inclusions determine the value of Burmese rubies. Best are stones with medium-dark red saturation. Too dark or too bright rubies aren't as expensive.


Burmese rubies are the greatest ruby gemstones because of their cut. Cuts vary for these stones. Cushion, oval, round, and emerald-cut rubies increase their brilliance. Other cuts include inherent, pear, briolette, and marquise.


The price of Burmese ruby varies on treatment. Heat enhances the stone's hue. This enhances the gem's transparency. Burmese rubies are heat-treated virtually permanently. Burmese rubies don't need maintenance. Low-grade Burmese rubies may be fracture-filled with lead glass. This improves their color and clarity. Finding a pure, natural, high-quality, untreated red Burmese ruby is difficult and may be expensive.


While good grade rubies may be found in Africa, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam, they can't match Burmese rubies' beauty, clarity, and intensity. Mogok Stone Tract in northern Burma and Mong Hsu, 250 km east of Mandalay, are noted for their high-quality rubies. Mogok's Burmese rubies are the best in 800 years. Pureness and color saturation gives Mogok rubies their deep beauty. 

The powerful fluorescent reactivity of these jewels to UV light adds to their inherent red shine. These characteristics make Burmese ruby gemstones special and exclusive. Find a provider of natural, untreated Burmese rubies now that you know the finest ones. Buy a Burmese Ruby that fulfills your demands and preserves its beauty.
