What Makes Star Ruby Valuable?
Star Rubies are considered to be the most valuable types of Ruby. The significant observable fact of star ruby is the development of the six rays giving rise to a gleaming star on the dome, arranged in perfect symmetry. When the stone is moved, it shifts its center and is distinctly visible under a single light source such as the sun or a lamp. In multiple light sources, multiple stars are seen, which is basically due to reflection. This effect is usually feeble in the transparent variety; in fact, it does not occur in complete transparency.
Asterism or Star-effect is due to the needle-like dense inclusions of tiny Rutile flakes. The star form is, therefore, due to the light reflecting from needle-like inclusions of Rutile or silk, as mentioned by many. These inclusions are aligned perpendicular to the rays of the star. Rubies always consist of Rutile and therefore, due to their property Ruby never found in complete transparency.
The value of Star Ruby mainly depends on the prominence and brightness of the star,
and the intensity of gemstone colour. Although, Ruby is found generally in red colour, Star Ruby is mainly available in pinkish red, purplish-brown, purple in colour. In general Pinkish red ruby with a perfect and prominent star is considered as most valuable, since, in red verity perfect start is very rare, and of course most costlier.
