2 ct. Gorgeous Unheated/Untreated Burmese Star Ruby Cabochon Gemstone set in Brass Holder Ring for Display.
This is a Gorgeous Sharp Star Ruby from the mines located in the Mogok region of Central Myanmar (Burma), a location that produces the world's best rubies. This stone is just shy of 2 carats making it a valuable investment sure to appreciate in value in the years to come.
This stone is also unique for the fact that In certain lighting the stone shows a saturated red color but when shown in a direct transmitted beam of light, the stone shows a sharp six ray star asterism inside the gem.
Truly an inspiring piece that gives a great perspective on just how complex mother nature can be and to the complex factors that are required for a Ruby to have a naturally occurring star asterism inside the stone.
These factors include the stone having intact threads of "silk" (tiny mineral hairlike inclusions) that distort the light reflecting off of the stone. This is the main factor for providing the star and depending upon the amount and size of these "silk" filament inclusions awn well as their orientation/alignment will determine how sharp the star asterism is inside the Gemstone.
Note: This Stone was mined in Myanmar which comonly set stones in inexpensive brass rings due to export laws imposed by Myanmar's government. These temporary settings should only be used for display purposes and minimal wearing until the stone can be set into proper jewelry.
This stone displays a nice 6 ray star when shown in transmitted light. It is set in a brass ring holder that allows the gem to be worn and displayed until a more durable gold or silver ring can be made for it.
Star Rubies are beautiful gemstones that display a six-ray star that seems to glide magically across the surface of the gem when the latter is moved.
This six-ray star is caused due to an optical phenomena known as "Asterism". The term "Asterism" is derived from the Greek word "aster", which means star, so asterism is commonly referred to as "star" or "star-effect".
In simple words, asterism is a star-shaped light effect across the surface of gems. The asterism on a Star Ruby should only appear when exposed to good lighting conditions.
Star Ruby has the same metaphysical properties as Ruby, but with increased healing and magical energies. It is most powerful at full moon.
