“Rubies are mined in Afghanistan, India, Mozambique, and Tajikistan. While rubies of all qualities can be found in all mines, there are certain mines that produce more visually appealing rubies.
Origin greatly affects the worth of a ruby. Hailing from the southeast Asian country of Myanmar, the Burmese Ruby, also known as the Pigeon’s Blood Ruby, proves to be visually stunning through its blood red coloring, and therefore, the most valuable type of ruby. For 800 years of history, the Mogok Stone tract has been characterized as the most famous source for Burmese Rubies.
The rubies found in this particular source can account their beauty to not only their vibrant red color, but also to a reaction to ultraviolet light, giving the gem an intense red glow when viewed in natural lighting. Rubies from this region are also known to have a lower iron content. When present in higher quantities, the iron can subdue the electric looking red fluorescence of the ruby. This ability to glow from within almost makes the Burmese rubies look like they have a flame glowing within them. Burmese rubies have a true red to pinkish, red color in natural lighting. This valuable combination sets Burmese rubies apart from all others. As they do not have other undertones, their value is higher than rubies from other sources.
More recently, rubies from the Möng Hsu region of Myanmar have become more abundant in the gem market. The coloring is similar with its fluorescent-like effect, but stones found from this region can be easily identified by the darkness of their core. Although also found in Myanmar, debates have been raised about whether the rubies found in Möng Hsu should be classified separately from the Burmese Ruby. However, no conclusion has been made.”[Ruby Formation & Origin | Ruby Education]
