55-Carat ‘Star of FURA’ Ruby to Shatter Records at Sotheby’s Auction

Sotheby’s, the renowned auction house, has just announced the sale of the largest ruby to ever hit the market. The Estrela de FURA, a rare and exceptional ruby, will be offered at the Magnificent Jewels auction in New York on June 8th. Experts have placed an estimated value of over $30 million, which would make it the most valuable ruby ever sold at auction. This is not just any ruby – it’s a one-of-a-kind gemstone with unparalleled beauty and quality, and it’s making waves in the jewelry industry.

The Estrela de FURA was cut and polished from a 101-carat rough discovered by FURA Gems, a Dubai-based gemstone mining and marketing company. Even in its rough state, it was considered an exceptional treasure of nature for its fluorescence, outstanding clarity, and vivid red hue, known as “pigeon’s blood.” The ruby was unearthed at FURA Gems’ ruby mine in Montepeuz, Mozambique, in July 2022, and has since been carefully cut and polished to reveal its full beauty.

What makes the Estrela de FURA so special is not only its large size but also its rarity. Natural rubies of this size and quality are extremely rare, and it’s even rarer to find a natural ruby that hasn’t been treated with heat or other processes. The Estrela de FURA is not only a record-setting gemstone but a symbol of the changing perception of African rubies. While Burma has long been considered the primary source of the most desirable rubies, this ruby is positioning African rubies as a serious contender in the market.

The ruby has already been graded by two prestigious gem labs, the Gübelin Gem Lab and the Swiss Gemmological Institute (SSEF), both of which have described it as a “treasure of nature.” Its highly crystalline appearance, rich saturation of color, and massive size make it a true standout in the world of gemstones.

The Estrela de FURA is currently on display at Sotheby’s Hong Kong and will travel to several other locations before the auction. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a truly exceptional gemstone, and the eyes of the world will be on Sotheby’s as the auction approaches. Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of history – bid on the Estrela de FURA and make it yours!
