Loose Ruby Treatments.
Most loose rubies available in the gem markets today are heat treated. Most commercial grades of ruby under 3 carat sizes are from the area called Mong Hsu in Burma. These rubies are almost unrecognizable as gem rubies in the raw uncut state. They are a very strong grade of purple and almost opaque and only after heat treatment is the color and clarity good enough to be faceted into gem rubies. Many of the Mong Hsu rubies are heavily fractured. These fractures detract from the clarity and brilliance of the gems. To make the rubies more transparent, the rubies are heated in a flux of borax which repairs these fractures and increases the value of the gems. To read in detail about this treatment process see Richard Hughes excellent website about Ruby treatments
