Ruby for Auction - Ross's Auctioneers & Valuers
Ruby Rubies are very closely related to sapphires as they are both from the mineral corundum, exhibiting all the same properties except colour. Rubies of exceptional colour and quality are extremely rare with some rubies fetching similar prices per carat to diamonds of the same weight.

There are very few known ruby deposits that can be worked today creating a supply issue for quality stones, therefore driving the price up of exceptional stones. A strong red colour is desirable, and this is one of the most important factors in pricing rubies; like emeralds, natural rubies inevitably have inclusions and this is tolerated when grading this gemstone.
