An absolutely gorgeous and *superior* unheated, untreated ruby from the famed gem mines of Mogok in Birma weighing an impressive 1.48ct. Gorgeous shade of pinkish red, very typical of Birma ruby. The colour will appear a tad more pink in sunlight - such as the bright Bangkok sunlight in which these pics were taken - and more red under incandescent lighting or cloudier conditions. The stone has excellent clarity - we would call it eye clean to all but the eagle eyed - and overall clarity is *absolutely* superior for the genre - unheated ruby from this origin will inevitably have some inclusions as this one does indeed have, but there are no ugly black spots etc and overall transparency is exceptional. Our pics probably do not do the gem justice, but this is a truly vibrant and lustrous stone with great life and brilliancy. We have used a sophisticated macro lens for these pics which is inevitably superior to the human eye.
The stone comes complete with a Gold certificate from the world renowned Lotus Gemology Laboratory (quite probably the best Laboratory for ruby and sapphire in the world) confirming no heat, Lotus colour grade for ruby ‘Hot Pink’ and the origin Burma.
The size is on the attached certificate. Whether mounted or loose, this ruby is absolutely CERTAIN to appreciate in value as time goes by. Shipping $60 EMS or Fedex
