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.
