The Crystal Chemistry Behind Ruby – Some Facts

Ruby is actually an oxide containing traces of chromium which give it a pleasing red color. Rubies make a double refraction, which means that the crystal cuts the light into two directions inside itself. For the same reason, the beautiful gemstone looks differently colored when looked at from two different angles. When looked at from the top, it looks deep red in color but upon being viewed from the side it often gives an orange-ish shade. Ruby is also the third hardest gemstone rating 9 on Mohs hardness scale.
