Ruby Lobster Recycled Paper Fine Art Print
Ruby is probably the most iconic coloured gemstone in the world, and its name will forever be linked with its striking, definitive colour. It is part of the Corundum family of gemstones, which also includes Sapphire - Ruby is the only form of Corundum not to fall under the Sapphire name. Mining of the gemstone can be traced back over 2,500 years, a period of time over which the stone has amassed an incredible history. Here we delve into the story of Ruby and explore how it came to be known as 'the king of gems’.
Ruby is the birthstone for July and the gem for the 15th and 40th anniversaries. It is often given as a gift to show the strength of one’s relationship. The gem features a trigonal crystal system. Ruby is the red variety of the mineral Corundum, to which Sapphire also belongs. Corundum in its purest form is colourless, the iconic colour of Ruby comes from traces of chromium within the stone. The gem needs as little as one part chromium per 1,000 parts in order to display a beautiful rich red colour. Corundum is an aluminium oxide, with chromium replacing some of the aluminium in the chemical makeup of Ruby. This unmistakable deep red colour has earned the gem the nickname ‘the gem of love’.
