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.
