Myanmar Ruby & Sapphire | Mogok

Remark: The following is only one of forty-five surveys of global resources found in Richard Hughes' Ruby & Sapphire, Section 12. Burmese name for ruby is Padamya ('much mercury'). Ruby is also taken from the name for the garnet seed. The Burmese conventionally refer to the subtle shade of ruby as "pigeon blood" (ko-twe), a concept that can be of Chinese (Anonymous, 1943) or Arabian origins.

Experience the following of al-Akfani, who described the top-variation of Rubin: A few have likened this colour to the centre of a living dove's eyes (Brown & Day, 1955). Halford Watkins described it as a deep scarlet red with no hint of blues overtone ("Anonymous", 1943). Other people have further described this as the colour of the first two droplets of colour from the nostrils of a newly killed Burmese dove.

To find a more descriptive quantity of this enigmatic color, known only to hunter and the few lucky owner of Burma's best ruby, the writer looked to the London Zoo for help. Burmese birds can finally be reliably taken out of the field of geomology and returned to the field of birdwatching.

Burma's second best colour is called "rabbit blood" or yeong-twe. It was the favourite colour of the renowned Mogok gemstone merchant A.C.D. Pain. Mogok trader and Pain's contemporaries of many years, U Thu Daw has explained that bho-kyaik is not so much a colour concept, but a general definition of inferiority.

In order to be qualified, a ruby must meet six conditions. Secondly, the colour must be of third grade (only surpassed by ko-twe and yeong-twe). Forth-best is a pale rose colour, which is called leh-kow-seet (literally "bracelet quality" ruby). On the lower end of the ruby dial is the deep ruby colour ka-la-ngoh. The majority of our black Ruby was marketed in Bombay or Madras, India.

On one end he has constructed a powerful room of bricks in which, according to folk traditions, jewels of exceptional value are located. However, in earlier times he traveled to Mandalay every year with a gift of jewels and was welcomed by the monarch. Burmese Ruby was unsurpassed until the Vietnam discovery in the end of the 1980'.

The Ruby discoveries in Vietnam have altered all this. The only thing that will tell is whether Vietnam' s mining operations will be able to survive, but from a historical perspective, Burmese jewels are in a league of their own. Burmese ruby's colour is due to a mixture of two elements. Firstly, the best bricks have a high colour depth.

The result is a mix of the slightly bluish-red colour of the skin and the cleaner reddish colour of the glow. The ruby has a cleaner reddish colour,14 but no intense luminosity. The colour is good in ruby where the lighting is correctly reflecting from the facet of the gazebo (inner brilliance). In the case of too steeply shaped facettes, however, the sunlight escapes through the side instead of coming back to the eyes and producing dark areas (extinction).

To a certain extent, all rocks exhibit this dying out, but in Burmese ruby it conceals the intense purple color. Burmese's best rocks are actually shining bright and seem as if Mother Nature had brush a wide strip of fluorescing reddish color over the face of the rock. Another determinant is the appearance of satin.

Minute dissolved entrapments are prone to diffuse daylight onto facettes that would otherwise be obliterated. It gives the colour a smoothness and spreads it over a larger part of the face. Thailan / Kambodian ruby does not contain Rutilseide and therefore have more extinctions. Indeed, most of the source of ruby has intense reddish fluorescent and silky tones, similar to those from Burma, with the exceptions of Thailand's ruby.

Usually, however, those from Sri Lanka are too pallid, while with other resources such as Kenya, Pakistan and Afghanistan materials that are sufficiently clear to be faceted are seldom. For example, the use of a mixture of subtle colour (body colour plus fluorescence) and faceted materials (i.e., inside clean) has brought the Burmese ruby directly to the purple heap.

Not only do some vintage cars think Burma is the best spring, but also the only spring of ruby stone. Considering that today probably 90% or more of the freshly obtained Ruby owes a good degree of clearness and colour to the thermal process, this message does not seem so strange (unfortunately most Burmese Ruby is heat-treated today).

The Mogok ruby ranges from light rose to brilliant reds and even deeper sheaves. Usually, most of them are slightly violet-red in colour and gradate into sapphire violets and violets. Subtle stellar ruins are also found. Twelve radiated stellar ruins have been recorded, but they are extremly seldom. Mugok rubins are obtained from a crystal lime stone matrices (marble), which results either from exposure or metamorphosis of the region.

Many kinds of solid crystallites are typical for Mogok-Rubins. Usually they cluster round and/or euhetral particles of a bright colour (or colourless), often concentrated in the centre of therystal. Frequent visitors are calculatedite, spinel, aluminium oxide, avatite, rutil and circon. Twin stripes can also be found in enclosed alumina cristals, which appear as plate like or round specimens with very low emboss.

Spinell crystal occurs both as octahedron and more frequently as round, uneven shapes of low emboss. Prime reddish colored and shiny metal particles are characterized by a high emboss. Light to light to light amber, partially absorbed low reliefs may be low reliefs of aspite; Eduard Gübelin (pers. commit., May 5, 1994) has said that aspatites in mogok ruins are rather round, while in Sri Lanka's rocks, aspatites often show clear faces.

High reliefs of amber crystalline form suggest sphalerites or spheres. Protruding prism of a amphibol containing avanadium, pargasite[NaCa2fe 4 (Al,Fe) A1 Si 6 O22 (OH)2 ] were seen by the artist in a spectecular vanadium-colored mogok piece (courtesy of Valaya Rangsit, ca. 1985). Mogok ruins are not particularly prone to primarily liquid-filled voids.

Mogok ruby negatives show similar faces and customs to their landlord. It is possible to separate negatives from solid materials because they have the same direction as their landlords. This means that the pinakoid surface of each positive crystall is exactly paralell to the same surface of the landlord and to all other positive crystalls in the lith.

In Mogok ruins, reverse polycrystals are often two-phase. Unprocessed mogok ruins contain far fewer toxic liquid entrapments (healing cracks or fingerprints) than those from Thailand/Cambodia, Sri Lanka or Kenya. However, heat-treated Burmese Ruby can contain many additional liquid entrapments that occur during the thermal processing. Found in virgin Mogok ruins, the liquid entrapments are prone to being well cured, with square vacuum bags that sometimes contain gasses.

Usually the finger prints of the intermediary step with small liquid hoses, which are usual for ruby from Thailand/Cambodia, Sri Lanka and Kenya, are missing. However, heat-treated Mogok rubins contain significantly more fingerprinting and liquid entrapment, making it harder to identify their ancestry. Rectilinear, square-growing zones are usual with Mogok ruins, as with other types of ruby from a source other than Thailand/Cambodia.

Looking at the crystalline surfaces in tandem, the ribbons line up in clear, thin areas; in other orientations, however, they can occur in uneven turbulences called syrups, due to their similarity to the turbulences in the syrups. Rhomboedric partnerships are usual and can have long, exsolated long exosolated Böhmite nodules on crossing twins.

The most diagnostical characteristics of the Mogok ruby are the thick blank areas of extruded debris. During the cooling of the aluminium oxide, its crystalline grid pulls together and pushes the titanatomes out of the solutions, where they combine with oxy carbon dioxide ions to create small shattered particles (TiO2). Instead of creating large beads, they move together to create tens of thousand small, slim pins where the place allows.

In the case of rutiles in aluminium oxide, this room is flat to the faces of the second order helix and intersects in three planes at 60/120 in the basement level. Upon close inspection, many of these crystal are seen as twins with minute V-shaped re-entry points at the wide end. In the basalt level they are so thinly planarized that under illumination with a fiber-optic optical fibre, color fading becomes apparent from above due to the interferences of the microscopic thin minerals.

Together with the Rutilseide in Mogok, ruby is a cloud of tiny particulates of unfamiliar natu... Those scattered nebulae, like the silks, also seem to originate from the exolution and are ordered in an equal design. Sometimes it was found that the thermal processing removed the corrugated rope, but not the particulates.

In some cases they may be made of a different type of minerals than rutiles. Because of their position, they also affect the stellar effect of star-shaped gemstones. Stars in star-shaped gemstones, in which silken nebulae mainly contain particulates, are diffused and undefined. On the other hand, where cloud is overweight in needle, the asterisk has a better distinction.

Burmese corundum contains both needle-dominated and particle-dominated star species. There is another kind of extruded needle integration in mogok rubies: boehmit. Understanding the big difference in direction and look, it is unlikely that Bohemian pins will be mistaken for rutilosilk. In the Mogok ruby, rhomboedric partnerships with Bohemian pins can be seen, although not as often as with Thai/Cambodian rubies. thai rhomboedric partnerships.

Colourless to dark reddish; the Burmese rubies' colour is generally purer than that of Thai/Cambodian ones; some rocks have a "garnet red" colour. Six-beam star is usual; 12 rays are known, but seldom. They have a colour shift similar to that of Verneuil plastic. Typical blunt crystal composed of prisms/pyramids closed by pinacoids and rhombohedrons.

Crystal often show a terrace-like look due to vibrations between pinakoid and diamond. Reconstructed quarries are scarce, except in heats. Often they are lacking the beautiful `lacy' look of Sri Lankan rocks; usually they have fluid-filled canals that are far apart. a. This chart is derived from the author's own comprehensive experiences, together with articles written by Eppler (1976), Fritsch & Rossman (1990), Gübelin (1973), Gübelin & Koivula (1986) and Kammerling & Scarratt et al. (1994).

Even though Mogok is much more common in the ruby production (about 80-90% of the production ), the sapphire can grow to bigger size. Big exquisite stellar saphire can also be found in Mogok, in additon to the stellar ruins. In the vicinity of Kabaing, in Kin, there is a mine known for its asterisks. Halford- Watkins (1935b) says that the most of the finest Sapphire comes from the area between Ingaung and Gwebin, as the current writer (RWH) discovered during his 1996 visit to Mogok.

It was bought and polished by Albert Ramsay and manufactured nine thin bricks with a diameter of 66 to 4 ct. It was Bernardmyo himself who once manufactured large amounts of Sapphire, many of which were of beautiful color and qualities, although some of them had a strange tone of indego, which was either very deep or disturbingly green by amber.

Most of the rocks found in this area were covered with a thin, almost non-transparent indigo-coloured shell, which showed a center of sometimes delicate precious stone grade, but in many cases of grey-green. A further quarantined area that has yielded some delicate sapphire is located in Chaungyi, four leagues up from Mogok, and about 1,000ft.

In addition to blues, Mogok also has purplish, crimson, colourless and yellowness saphire. They can be purplish and purplish red; it is not usual for them to be bright. Emerald coloured saphires are known, but seldom. The Burmese Ruby is known throughout the entire hemisphere as the best of its kind, but the Burmese Sapphire has been shamefully, but wrongly, denounced as of bad enough condition.

Indeed, nowhere else in the word are such excellent saphires made. Whilst this claim needs to be qualifying in that the best cashmere is in a league of its own, those from Burma are also great. Burmese Sapphire as a whole has been said to be usually too obscure for general agreement, but that is completely wrong; besides the cashmere Sapphire they are second to none.

In general, Ceylon and Siam sapphire are too bright and too darkness, and it is more than likely that many of the best'Ceylon' rocks saw the daylight from the slopes of the Mogok Stone Tract. All Burmese Sapphire do not have a strong colour. Some of the best show a saturated, intensive, slightly violet shade of blues, but some are quite bright, similar to those from Sri Lanka.

Burmese and Ceylon sapphire are mainly saturated, with Burmese sapphire having much more colour in the masonry. Ribbons that are so pronounced on Ceylon bricks can be completely missing on Burmese saphires. Mogok sapphire contains different impurities from their reddish ancestors. Even though the Sapphire are quarried near each other, they probably originate from pegmatite and Nephelin-coral syenite, while the Rubines have developed in a metamorphic crystal lime.

As with the ruby, mogok saphires contain thick rutil silken cloud, and a number of delicate stellar saphires in various blues have been excavated. However, contained crystal is less widespread in the cyan gemstones than the reds, while liquid occlusions are much more frequent. After all, the colour of the Mogok sapphire is extraordinarily even, and in some examples there is no stratification even under water.

Absence of a pungent zone (and the existence of a rhombohedral sliding pairing) help to distinguish mogok from those of Sri Lanka, where they are less widespread. Almost colourless to full, dark blues, almost bordering on the mauve. In spite of the stereotypical'intense blue' Burmese sauna, many Burmese sauna stones are quite bright and resemble those from Sri Lanka.

Burmese Sapphire's colour is often only a little purer than that of Sri Lanka. A pale purple colour, usually pale purple. Six-ray constellations are usual in many colours; twelve-ray constellations are seldom. The Burmese sapphire has been found in a wide range of habitats, such as pegmatite, corundum syenite, gneiss and originalite.

Mogok sapphire contains only a few hard deposits, with the exceptions of ex-solvated mineral. Zirconium has been recognized as round grain, with or without halo, as well as magnetized (spinel group) octahedron, large individual rutilated prism and pyrotite (magnetic pyrite) beads. A sample investigated by the artist had a heavily rusty low reliefs tablet shaped crystall with a light blue discolour.

Adverse crystal is widespread in Mogok Stone Tract Sapphire, although most appear to be of more of a subsidiary than a principal source. This ranges from finger prints with slim, worm-shaped liquid ducts to curved concentration of squared, biphasic negatives. Sometimes the liquid-filled prints are overlaid with these orders of minus crystal, indicating two distinct phases of fracture and heal.

Mogok sapphire colour distributions are extraordinarily uniform; this is one of the most important distinctions between Mogok and Sri Lanka's saphire. Gemstones from every town have the same subtle shade of blues, but you can never get too much of a good thing and Sri Lanka's gemstones usually contain essential areas without colour.

The even colouring of the mogok gives them an intense colour that is missing in most Sri Lankan rocks. The colour in the former is so well distributed that in many cases even a detailed examination, while diiodomethane is dipped into it, provides no indication of banderon. Only the small indigenous Yogo Gulch, Montana and Mogok blues lack the band.

Poly-synthetic partnerships along the rhombic surfaces are customary in Burmese saphires. Partnerships of this kind are relatively seldom in Sri Lanka. While Burmese saphires have a number of similar characteristics in common with their Sri Lankan counterparts, the poly-synthetic partnership is generally not one. In Sri Lanka, the rhythmic partnership in mogok is rather seldom.

Mogok sapphire is similar to the Mogok ruby. In comparison to Sri Lankan rocks, silks tend to be packaged much smaller and denser and can be recognised by their spiked or dartshapes. In some mogok saphirs, the writer has seen what seems to be a second kind of satin that differs from rutil in several ways.

It is more of a brown or yellow colour than rutil. Though it is aligned in the base layer in three direction at an angle of 60/120°, these direction are 30° off from that of the rutil and run in line with the faces of the first order and not the second order hexahedral. There are also recognizable variations in form, with the new fabric appearing as ultra-thin, oblong sheets with a contorted diagonal contour.

The possible identifiers are haematite, illmenite or a mixture of haematite and illmenite as it has been found in Thai, Canadian and Umbasapphire. In Mogok, 12-rayed stellar sacs have seldom been found. This may be due to the almost identical appearance of rubbish and a second kind of satin as described above. As with Mogok ruins, zone cloud formation of tiny exsolvent particulates is usual for Mogok Sapphires.

Whereas it seems possible that in some cases it is only a matter of smaller variations of rutilose, in other cases there are visible variations between the fabric and the beads. Apparently, as with the two kinds of silks, there are at least two kinds of extruded beads in mogok-sapphire. It is customary to use extruded boehmite pins.

The rhombohed areas are located at the intersection of the dual plains, not in the basalt area. Almost colourless to full, dark blues, almost bordering on the mauve. In spite of the stereotypical'intense blue' Burmese sauna, many Burmese sauna are quite bright and resemble those from Sri Lanka.

Burmese Sapphire's colour is often only a little purer than that of Sri Lanka. A pale purple colour, usually pale purple. Six-ray constellations are usual in many colours; twelve-ray constellations are seldom. The Burmese sapphire has been found in a wide range of habitats, such as pegmatite, corundum syenite, gneiss and originalite.

In contrast to most other springs, Burmese bluish crystal is rather plate-shaped and consists of small prism/pyramids with large pinakoid surfaces. Secundary treated bone is quite frequent (unlike mogok ruby); it takes on a wide range of pattern and thickness. Zonation of growing is not so frequent; sometimes wide areas of zonation are seen.

Rupture in thick cloud of (often, but not always) small pins, in line with the basement planes in 3 axes at 60/120 to the Hexagon V-block. According to reports, rutil is rarely found in white and blue rocks (U Hla Win, personal collection, May 2, 1994).
