    One of the main reasons for rubies to be revered in so many cultures, both in the East and the West, is its vibrant feisty red colour, first and foremost Burmese rubies from the Mogok Tract, coveted by rulers and emperors for their 'pigeon’s blood red' hue. Rubies from Mogok possess the unrivalled crimson red body colour together with a red fluorescence, both induced by the element chromium. In addition, the beauty of Mogok ruby is further augmented by the multitude of tiny, fine needles, commonly known as 'silk', which cause light to diffract and scatter evenly throughout the facets and crystal, affording the gemstone an extraordinary fire and a desirable saturated colour. Such a colour is referred to as 'pigeon’s blood red' in the trade.
    This ruby of over 5 carats, certified by SSEF to display this legendary blood red colour and by Gübelin to have originated from the famed Mogok region, combines exceptional quality and important pedigree.

    紅寶石之所以在世界各地文化中都佔有重要的位置,是因為只有它才擁有艷紅飽和的顏色,尤其是來自於緬甸抹谷山脈的紅寶礦石。抹谷的紅寶不但通體發紅,而且還有紅色的熒光反應,兩者都源於寶石內的鉻元素,令它看上去更加火紅耀眼。此外,抹谷紅寶石內有許多極微小的針狀物,又稱作「絲」,能將光線平均地折射到每一個晶體的切面上,令顏色分佈更均勻,讓紅寶變得更紅更美,此稀有的特徵被稱為「鴿血紅」色。
    此重逾5克拉的緬甸紅寶石,不但取得瑞士SSEF的「鴿血紅」色級,更被Gübelin鑑定來自著名的抹谷礦區,集合了最頂級的品質和最重要的產地於一身。
