Tanzania rubies

We know about origins of rubies from Burma, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Africa, and India. These are well-known origins of rubies. Tanzania is a comparatively new origin. Some fine quality rubies are found in this origin. However, most of the ruby stones from this mine are of comparatively inferior quality.

Tanzanian ruby has a vivid red color, but most of the stones are inclusive. It is good for cabochons and beads. These stones are also being heat treated.
