These Faceted Ruby Pierced Earrings represent rubies and countless other gemstones curated by our National Gem and Mineral Collection at our National Museum of Natural History. One of the greatest collections of its kind, its over 375,000 individual specimens include several historic rubies—the Carmen Lúcia Ruby (one of the finest large, faceted Burmese rubies known) and the Star of Katmandru (a magnificent Sri Lankan star ruby).
Distinguished and prized for its bright red color and luster, rubies are the scarcest of all gemstones, commanding very high prices. Rubies are the red variety of the mineral corundum. (Any other color of corundum is considered a sapphire.) Ruby is the birthstone of July.
