History: Records suggest that rubies were traded along China's North Silk Road as early as 200 BC. Chinese noblemen adorned their armor with rubies because they believed the gem would grant protection. Burma has been a significant ruby source since at least 600 AD.

A group of scientists studying the geology of rubies in Greenland, a country known to hold the oldest deposits of rubies in the world, found a ruby that contained graphite, a mineral made up of pure carbon. The presence of carbon indicates that early life existed on the planet around 2.5 billion years ago.
