Red stones are known as Ruby and all other colours as Sapphires. The name is derived from the Sanskrit “kuruvinda” meaning Ruby. A rare sapphire is a Padparadscha which is a pinky peach colour, found in Sri Lanka. Ruby is the second hardest natural mineral known to mankind. Red colour in a Ruby is caused by trace amounts of the element Chromium. The best shade of red for a Ruby is Pigeon Blood Red. Ruby can be any shade of red up to almost pink.
