Ruby is considered one of the four precious stones and is a red variety of the mineral Corundum. Its name comes from ruber, Latin for red. Ruby is the birthstone for July and also a traditional gift for those celebrating 15th or 40th anniversaries.
Throughout history, ruby has been and remains to be one of the most sought after gems in the world. The most expensive ruby ever sold was the "Hope Ruby" which weighs 32.08 carats and sold for $6.74 million. Some famous rubies include the "Rosser Reeves Star Ruby," the "Edwardes Ruby," and the "De Long Star Ruby"
