Ruby & its scientific aspects:
Termed as alpha alumina, the precious ruby is considered to be one of the most stable forms of aluminum oxide. It is formed by the chemical reaction of the aluminum oxide and chromium. Al2O3.Cr represents the chemical formula for Ruby. The composition of this specific mineral is mainly composed of the chromium and the aluminum oxide. Photo chemical synthesis shows that the ruby has its specific scarlet & burgundy luster.
Found in the year 1837, the high quality alum fitkari is mixed with the chromium at very high temperature. The chromium is the main element which represents the color. The first synthetic ruby was made by Gaudin in 1837 by fusing potash alum at a high temperature with a little chromium as a pigment. In 1847 Ebelmen made white sapphire by fusing alumina in boric acid. In 1877 Frenic and Freil made crystal corundum from which small stones could be cut. Frimy and Auguste Verneuil manufactured artificial ruby by fusing BaF2 and Al2O3 with a little chromium at red heat. In 1903 Verneuil announced he could produce synthetic rubies on a commercial scale using this flame fusion process.
Imitation or Artificial rubies have also been marketed. Red spinels, red garnets, and colored glass have been falsely claimed to be rubies. Imitations go back to Roman times and already in the 17th century techniques were developed to color foil red—by burning scarlet wool in the bottom part of the furnace—which was then placed under the imitation stone.[ Trade terms such as balas ruby for red spinel and rubellite for red tourmaline can mislead unsuspecting buyers. Such terms are therefore discouraged from use by many gemological associations such as the Laboratory Manual Harmonisation Committee (LMHC)
