The Mogok Sunrise


Originating from the corundum family, rubies have been long regarded as the “king of precious stones” in Sanskrit, which they call the “Ratnaraj”. One of the most prominent locations for the finest rubies is Burma; in particular, the valley of Mogok has been a legendary source of gemstones for over a thousand years. Classical mines such as these as well as smaller deposits in Namya were famed for their deep red beauty, which came to be known as “pigeon blood red”. These were the most treasured shades of ruby, as the gemstone would display an intensely saturated red hue without any secondary colours. Named the Mogok Sunrise, this 5.05-carat ruby displays a captivating hue, tone and saturation balance that is coupled together with an exceptional clarity, which is characteristic of the highest quality rubies. Without any heat treatment, the natural beauty of the stone radiates from within as a fiery red sparkle.

紅寶石是一種剛玉,在梵文中被稱為「Ratnaraj」,亦即「寶石之王」。緬甸自古以來一直是頂級紅寶石的重要產地,而抹谷山谷更是盛產紅寶石的傳奇地方。除了抹谷以外,面積較小的緬甸那米亞產區同樣以出產「鴿血紅」而聞名於世。「鴿血紅」呈濃郁鮮艷的紅色,並無任何二次色,是紅寶石中最珍貴的色調。這顆 5.05 克拉的紅寶石「抹谷破曉」未經加熱處理,色調均勻飽滿、質地清透純淨,由內散發出火紅光芒,將頂級紅寶石的特徵表露無遺,教人目眩不已。
