Star Ruby / Star Sapphire

The undisputed ruler in the fascinating world of gemstones. One of the most charming, fascinating and remarkable creations of nature. Star Rubies are a rare variety of the gemstone Ruby that is only mined in INDIA through out the world. These magnificent gems display a sharp six-rayed star which seems to glide magically across the surface of the gem when the latter is moved. This is caused due to an optical phenomenon known as “Asterism”. The star is best visible when the star ruby is seen in a single light source such as sunlight and spotlight.

Star sapphires are cabochon-cut sapphires that reflect light in such a way that the stone appears to have a star within it. The star, or “asterism,” is caused by inclusions within the gemstone. Star sapphires are becoming rare as the number of faceted gemstones increase and the number of cabochons decrease. The unique nature, rarity and beauty of the asterism phenomenon make star sapphires popular among collectors and jewelry lovers alike.
