Unheated Burma Rubies for Jyotish
Surya - Sun - Ruby - Sunday
Ruby is the gemstone for Surya/Sun.
The best rubies come from Myanmar (formerly Burma). Vietnamese grades into Burma and is similar. Fine Thai ruby, although extinct at the mines, is also acceptable.
See Photos of the Jyotish Quality Unheated Rubies we have for sale.
Color: Red, to slightly violet-red, to slightly pinkish-red. Clarity: Rubies are a type two gemstone. Some minor inclusions using a loupe at 10x are acceptable, but gems should be eye flawless. Clarity should be VS1 or better.
Size: Fine Jyotish quality Rubies (as well as diamonds) are more powerful than other gems and most people do not require a minimum of two carats. 1.00 carat to 1.50 carats is the minimum for Rubies.
Cut: Look for good symmetry.
Shape: Oval, Cushion, Round, Emerald cut.
Enhancements: Regular heating is OK. Because the Sun is a hot planet, regular heating of rubies does not spoil their effects. Unheated rubies are super rare and desirable, although not required.
Beware: Avoid Beryllium diffusion heated rubies that are of Madagascar and Tanzanian origin, new lead-glass heated rubies (which are of poor quality, heavily treated and unstable), and glass filled cavities on back of gem. Also avoid brownish and overly dark tones.
Bypass the limitations of digital photography: We can arrange for any gemstone to be sent to you to see in person before you purchase it.
