Nice! I like rubies - my birthstone.

I always thought Burma rubies were choice--but after seeing these babies I've ultimately changed my mind...

They look pretty but... They really aren't rare stuff like the folks on the show want you to believe. Rather interesting that their show is hand in hand with their online sales website. http://www.gemguys.com/shop-by-gemstone/ Sunset rubies are rubies that are treated to make them look better. Diffusion treatment is done with a lot of stones. Here's some info about it: http://www.ruby-sapphire.com/treated_orange_sapphire.htm https://www.lotusgemology.com/files/pdf/Beryllium-Diffusion-of-Ruby-and-Sapphire.pdf
