Description:Ruby from Burma is one of the most storied gems in the world. Some of the finest Rubies in the world are found in Burma. The gem in this rough and cut has an attractive pinkish-red color, and is gem quality in clarity. It has an "Oval Step" cut. The matching crystal has a rich purplish-pink hue, and looks wonderful when backlit. The crystal faces are sharp, lustrous and well-formed with textbook hexagonal form. These are absolutely some of the most popular Rubies in the world. PLEASE NOTE: The embargo implemented by the United States government states that there will NOT be ANY of these Rubies imported to U.S. soil after September 30, 2008. It appears that the embargo has now been lifted, but there is now very little available on the market, and one can only purchase gems that were imported prior to the embargo. It seems that these Burmese Rubies will be very difficult to obtain.
