MOZAMBIQUE RUBY VALUE

Unheated Mozambique Rubies are considered some of the most expensive gemstones available due to their limited availability and high demand. The unheated stones are particularly sought after in China, where red gemstones are believed to bring luck and good fortune. Mozambique Rubies have a slightly different color from Burmese Rubies due to higher iron content, but they are equally stunning.

 

MOZAMBIQUE RUBY COLORS

Mozambique Rubies often exhibit a brownish tone compared to the pinkish tones seen in Burmese Rubies. However, Mozambique Rubies are known for their exceptional clarity, setting them apart from their Burmese counterparts.

 

MOZAMBIQUE RUBY SOURCES

These rubies are primarily mined in the Mozambique region of Africa, and they are considered the most valuable of all African rubies due to their transparency and brilliant red hue. The Montepuez deposit, discovered in 2009, is one of the largest ruby deposits ever found and is actively promoted by Gemfields to ensure ethical and responsible mining practices.

 

MOZAMBIQUE RUBY PROPERTIES

Mozambique Rubies are already rare, and their scarcity has increased over the years due to high demand and illegal mining activities. Their rarity and exceptional beauty contribute to their constantly rising value, making them a sought-after gemstone among collectors and enthusiasts.

 

MOZAMBIQUE RUBY CARE


Rubies are relatively durable, with a hardness of 9.0 on the Mohs scale, just one step below that of diamonds. However, it's important to handle them with care, as internal cracks and inclusions can make them susceptible to breakage upon impact.

Owning a Mozambique Ruby is indeed a special and valuable investment, given their unique characteristics and increasing rarity in the market.
