PICT6951ac Ocean of Rubies
Only one is so expensive, There is a true fortune there!!!!!! There was a protecting glass above the precious boxes and of course ceiling lamps reflections that I tryed to avoid or to remove! The ruby is a pink to blood-red colored gemstone, a variety of the mineral corundum (aluminium oxide); The red color is caused mainly by the presence of the element chromium; Its name comes from ruber, Latin for red; Other varieties of gem-quality corundum are called sapphires; The ruby is considered one of the four precious stones, together with the sapphire, the emerald, and the diamond; Cambodia Siemreap Jewellery Shop.

Yes of course mainly from Burma; Prices are much lower than in Europe and can be discussed but exceptional big pieces need to be carved again! Thank You Evan!
