Item 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. This gem has an attractive pinkish red color, and is certainly gemmy in areas It has a "Cushion Step" cut. 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. The embargo appears to now be over, but now it is still very difficult to find this material on market as it now distributed to Asian marketplaces. For many years, one could only purchase gems in this country that were imported prior to the embargo. People are telling me that they are buying up these gems now because they have been disappearing from the market.
