  • Ruby:  July’s Gemstone

    The Jewelry Hut July Birth Gemstone, the  Ruby

Rubies come from Burma, Thailand, Kenya, Tanzania, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, and India.  It is the accepted gemstone for July birthdays, also 15th and 40th anniversary.
The ruby is named because of its rich red color. The ruby is a very durable gemstone; its hardness is surpassed only by diamond. Large rubies are very scarce and costly, worth more than 2 to 3 times a diamond of equal size and quality.
Rubies were thought to contain a glowing spark struck from the planet Mars.  Ancient lore held that the ruby was capable of curing illness and reconciling lovers quarrels. Hindus referred to the ruby as “The Lord of the Gems,” and believed its deep red color came from an inextinguishable fire which was capable of boiling water. It is said that a person should never make faces at a ruby in a museum, and never ignore it, for it was said to grow dull if slighted or not worn or seen.

Blue topaz is one of the accepted birth stones for December and anniversary gemstone for 4th year of marriage, and Imperial topaz for the 23rd.  Topaz is found mainly in Brazil, Nigeria, and Sri Lanka.

Topaz is said to make its wearer invisible in times of emergency.  It proved the loyalty of associates by changing color in the presence of poison.

  • Grape Garnet

    The Jewelry Hut Grape Garnet

Grape Garnet describes an intense purple-red variety of garnet that is distinctively different in color from ordinary rhodolilte or amandine garnet.
Mined in the Orissa of Northwest India, Grape Garnet constitutes only a minute fraction of the massive Indian garnet production.  Due to primitive mining methods and a short mining season interrupted by torrential monsoons, this stone variety is not widely known outside its local area.  Historically we see examples of this material as badly faceted, dull purple stones in silver jewelry or as beads. But careful selection of rough stones and precision faceting bring out its unique fire and color. The result is an intense purple-red hue that flashes and sparkles even in very limited light, and positively comes alive in sunlight.

  • Tanzanite

    The Jewelry Hut Tanzanite

While tanzanite ranges in color from pale lilac to deep intense blue, each stone gives you three colors. From one angle, you may see it as a brilliant blue; turned in another direction, the color will show a purple almost as lovely as fine amethyst; turned a third way, the color will show a salmon-pink brown.
Tanzanite is one of the newest gemstones;  it was named in 1967, when the first beautiful crystals were discovered in Tanzania. Because it comes from only one location and is relatively rare, it bestows on its owner a mark of distinction.  Tanzanite is still young, so there is no folklore connected with it.
To maintain its brilliance, clean in jewelry cleaner or lukewarm water, do not use a home ultrasonic cleaner or subject to steam. Avoid hard knocks and scratches as well as extreme temperature changes.

  • Tourmaline

    The Jewelry Hut Tourmaline

Tourmaline occurs in the widest array of colors of any gemstone species.  Sometimes as many as two or three colors exist in the same cut stone.  Tourmaline is also known under different names: The “rubelite” is red, sometimes with a violet tint.  Fine “chrome” tourmaline has a beautiful rich green color.  “Indicolite” ranges from very light to dark shades of blue, violet blue, and greenish blue.
The name “tourmaline” has its origins in the Sinhalese word “Turmali”, which means mixture. Originally, native miners applied this term to mixed parcels of gems when they didn’t really know what the stones were.
Tourmaline is sometimes known as an alternative birthstone for October,  and the accepted anniversary gemstone for eight year of marriage.
