Ruby is the red variety of corundum (all other corundum colors are considered sapphire) that we are seeing more and more of coming out of East Africa. Rubies have been sought after since the dawn of time, as its gorgeous red hue represents romance, love, passion, and power. It has also long been associated with attributes such as beauty and wisdom.
Ruby is the birthstone for the month of July.
When you shop with ANZA Gems, you're making a difference and giving back to East African mining communities. ANZA supports artisans at every level, beginning with purchasing directly in-country in Tanzania and Kenya, then using US and Kenyan artisanal cutters–a number of them women–to facet the gems into one-of-a by-kind creations. At least 10% of your purchase will directly benefit education, vocational training, community development and other initiatives supporting miners where they need it most through the nonprofit Gem Legacy.
