Ruby, also called corundum, is an extremely hard (Moh hardness 9) aluminum oxide with a hexagonal crystal system. It is the red variety of corundum as well as one of the primary varieties, along with Sapphire. Ruby’s color range includes red, reddish-pink, and blood orange red but can sometimes be found in blue and green varieties. The bold and intense red color is caused by chromium, a rare periodic element. Ruby was named after the Latin word meaning “red”. It is primarily found in Burma, India, Brazil, Thailand, Sri Lanka, and throughout the USA.
