In the 19th Century, the appellation "ruby" is adopted by the corundum family.
Then, in the 1990's, it has been decided by the International Colored Gemstones Association that all shades of red gemstones must be called rubies because it is too difficult to distinguish the different shades of red and pink.

In the minerals universe, the red colour is the most difficult to find. It is composed of aluminium oxyde, chromium, which give it its red colour, with purple shades.
