When certain mineral combinations are subject to extreme heat and pressure, wonderful things can happen. Rubies might have turned out as sapphires or emeralds, they have the same basic components after all. Only a tiny mineral change and the right machinations of the Earth’s crust came along to kiss the stone with enough fire to turn it this brilliant shade of bright red. It’s almost as if that intense heat has been captured in the form of this glowing and sparkling gem. A rare and stunning stone that only fire could create.
