Product Description

An historic and highly collectible synthetic Ruby.

Created in the 1980's by the Chatham company in the USA using a flux-melt (Hydrothermal) process, the stone has a vibrant, rich red colour which is comparable to the finest Burmese pidgeon-blood red stones.

Its interior scenery is typical and highly characteristic and displays the characteristic 'twisted veil' fingerprint-like inclusions of residual flux (magnified images 6 abd 7).

Under long-wave UV illumination, the stone fluoresces a bright red colour, another key indicator of its origin (image 5).

A classic man-made gemstone for the collector of synthetic gems, which would make an excellent reference stone for students of gemmology.
