Did you know, Rubies are part of the corundum group of minerals, which also includes Sapphires? Along with Sapphires, Emeralds and Diamonds they are what is termed the '4 precious stones’.
All the lucky July babies have Rubies for their Birthstone, and the rest of us just have to be jealous!
Almost all rubies today are treated in some form, heating and dying being the main types of treatment. Untreated rubies of excellent quality are incredibly expensive. Due to these treatments Rubies require a little bit of extra care, always protect them from excessive light, heat and chemicals. If they do start to look a little dull, try rubbing oil (baby oil is great) onto the surface of the stone, this will reinvigorate the colour again.
