A SHORT HISTORY OF THE BURMESE RUBY AND SAPPHIRES

 Burma, by reputation and experience, continues to produce some of the world's finest Rubies. While the original locality for Ruby was most likely Sri Lanka (Ceylon), the classic source is the Mogok Stone Tract in upper Burma. So much so that one of the recognized titles of the Kings of Burma was "Lord of the Rubies." You may have noticed throughout the book that I call the country "Burma" not Myanmar. In 1989 the charismatic opposition leader Aung San Suu Kui was placed under house arrest, and the country was renamed Myanmar. Many democrats oppose the name change, and we agree with their example.

"Pigeon's blood" is the traditional way describe a rare and valuable Burmese Ruby color. This color meant the first two drops of blood by a freshly killed pigeon-red with a slight touch of purple to it. Some people feel this is a bit barbarian but the description is still recognized.

Burmese Rubies come from the Mogok Valley in north-central Burma and Möng Hsu in northeast Burma. It is pronounced "Mong-Shoe").

Möng Hsu is 140 miles southeast of Mogok. It is located between the Nam Pang and Salween Rivers. It is closed to foreigners, and the road is so bad it takes around 14 hours to travel there from the nearest town of Taunggyi. Typical of many areas in Burma's Shan States, the population of the Möng Hsu area consist of Shans in the valleys with hill tribes (Palaungs at Möng Hsu) living in the mountains. The Palaungs cultivated tea before the discovery of Ruby.

While Ruby mining in Mogok dates to the 6th century, Rubies were not discovered in Möng Hsu until 1991 when a local resident, who used to be a Ruby miner at Mogok, went bathing in the Nam Nga stream and found red gems between his toes and among the pebbles on the riverbanks.

Thus began Burma's most recent Ruby rush as the town's population quadrupled overnight from approximately 8,000 people to over 30,000 people at the peak. This tapered off by 1993, but since the advent of high temperature treatmentMöng Hsu has become increasingly important source of Burmese Ruby. 

Ruby mining in Burma was initially restricted to alluvial deposits, but has now also moved to host rock deposits in the surrounding hills. Burma's Rubies occur in a crystalline limestone (marble). Millions of years of weathering freed the Rubies from their host rock, carrying them down from the hills to the valley floors, where they have settled in the bottom of the streams and rivers. It is from these ancient alluvial river gravels (known in Burma as "byon") that the majority of gems have been recovered.
