Description

The "Big 3" - Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald, are the few of the most coveted gems in the world. A natural pigeon-blood red unheated ruby of 6 carats from Myanmar can be valued as high as a million dollars; an exquisite high clarity blue sapphire of 5 carats from Kashmir can be valued as high as half a million dollars. To understand the value, we first need to know the properties of these gems, their identification and authenticity, followed by learning about the quality factors of these gems.
