    I kind of had the idea they were. What about Diamonds and Emeralds? I'm curious now.

    The ruby is very nice! Hmm someone could set it in a pendant & make a necklace!

    I got them mixed up with something else.

    wiki:
    "Although blue is the most well known hue, sapphire is any color of corundum except red [which is ruby]. Sapphire may also be colorless, and it also occurs in the non-spectral shades gray and black."

    I think I once heard that rubies are even more rare than diamonds.

    What about them? Diamonds are diamonds, moissanite is close but not the same and very rare naturally only having been found in meteorites really. They make it synthetically though it's still fairly costly I would rather it than a diamond in all honesty.

    Emeralds, brittle, too much so in fact to be good in most jewelry. Amazing stones, included by nature and rare in larger sizes.

    Everything is more rare than diamonds however diamonds are SOOO hard they make for wonderful rings. Large, very clean diamonds are in fact very rare but diamonds in general not really.

    Benitoite and Painite (perfect name for a weeding ring) are far more rare and AMAZING.

    Pictures of Benitoite:
