Star Ruby Burma Origin 1.73 carats 7.2x6.6mm
Bright beautiful red color on a translucent body on this Star Ruby from Burma. We recently found this stone as part of an old parcel purchased well over a decade ago in a shop in ThailandFYI-, and long thought lost. Excellent color and star on this treasure.
FYI-The Tom Lantos Block Burmese JADE (Junta's Anti-Democratic Efforts) Act of 2008 prohibits United States imports of jadeite and ruby from Myanmar, even if the gems are processed in, and exported from, another country. This act was stemmed from the numerous human rights abuses alleged by the Burmese government
