Price of Ruby (per carat / per ratti)

  • Ruby price per carat depends upon Weight (carats/ratti), Treatments and Quality (Cut, Clarity and Color) as well as mines and origin.
  • Natural Ruby Stone Price in India is between rupees 1,000 per carat to rupees 20,000 per carat and above.
  • For Astrological benefits, the quality is dependent mainly upon the clarity of the gemstone and only a little bit on the color/cut.
  • While it is absolutely normal and acceptable, as per the current industry standards, to have some minor inclusions present in a natural gemstone. However, if these inclusions affect the clarity of the crystal then the astrological influence of the gemstone, as well as the price, gets reduced dramatically. 
  • Ruby(Manik) stone prices per carat can be converted into Manik stone price per Ratti by multiplying it by 0.9 (so, Rs 10,000/ct = Rs 9,000/ratti).
NOTE : Prices may vary according to the scope of availability of the rough in nature and market as well as Government Policies.

Ruby Quality:-

Mainly three things (3C’s) are considered while deciding quality of astrological Ruby namely Cut Colour and Clarity.

  • Cut:- Cut is normally misunderstood as the shape of the gemstone, but it actually refers to the faces on the gemstone's surface. These cuts allow the light and colour to pass through and shine to the fullest.

According to the latest technological advancement the Science of Symmetry is followed by MyRatna to harness all the natural benefits of the gemstone.

  • Colour:- Ruby comes in range of pinkish red to dark red in colour. The best chosen colour for a perfect astrological Ruby is Pigeon-Blood Red as well as Rose-petal Pink.
  • Clarity:- “Eye Clean” Ruby is considered as a good choice which means the gemstone is completely clear to the naked eye. Natural gemstone can't be free of inclusions which mean crystal & feathers are typically discovered in Ruby. Only man made synthetic stones are flawless.
