4.36 carat Antique Burmese Ruby Bead


Number of Gems: 1

Weight: 4.36

SKU: RUBEED-436 Category:

A rare and beautiful antique Burmese ruby bead. Actually, this bead is one of numerous we have which was selected for gemological submission for testing and verification, and as was documented in our family archives, it was graded as Burmese and showed “no indications of heating”.

Even though we documented them as antique beads, GIA named the form of this ruby a double cabochon, curved and smoothed on all sides of the gem. It definitely possesses a unique off-balanced form which further authenticates its antique status vs. present more balanced forms.

Its color is a beautiful pure old Burma red, this gem also exhibits the glowing phenomena typical to such old Burmese material. It does possess scattered inclusions which classifies it as translucent material but quite interesting and esthetic to the eye…, it offers character and marks further authenticating its natural status.

Available as a single or as a rare lot!
