The ruby is the king among gemstones. Its strong color stands for passion and love, making it one of the most sought-after gemstones in the world for over 1000 years. Rubies belong to the kurund family, making them the second hardest element after diamonds. Beautiful, clear and pure rubies are extremely rare as they grow in nature under stressful conditions. Therefore, it is quite normal to see a slight to moderate inclusion pattern. Inclusions only reduce the quality if they alter the transparency of the stone or are right in the center. Eye clean rubies are a real rarity and therefore very valuable.
Nowadays, many rubies are heated to improve their purity and color. In the trade, customers must normally be informed of such an intervention - the majority of gemstone dealers, however, either conceal this completely or until shortly before the completion of the purchase.
Since the gemstones at MIADANA come directly from small-scale mining, the vast majority are completely natural, unheated and without human intervention. Only very inclusion-rich or extremely dark material can be "saved" by heating and thus become worthy of cutting. However, we always indicate this.
At MIADANA, we are committed to responsible small-scale mining, social justice in mining communities with a partnership of equals. Interested in our philosophy? Read more here: miadana.de/from-mdg-with-love
