|This June at Guernsey’s auction house in New York, a collection of extraordinary star rubies – described by experts as potentially the best in the world – will go under the hammer. Weighing a combined 342 carats, the Mountain Star Ruby Collection consists of four one-of-a-kind gems.|
The most impressive ruby in the collection is the 139.43 carat 'Appalachian Star'. It weighs just over a carat more than the 138-carat Rosser Reeves Star Ruby on display at the Smithsonian. The Mountain Star Ruby collection is even more unusual because the gems were found in Appalachia, North Carolina. The finder was a humble local man and self-confessed “rock hound”. He made the discovery in 1990 on one of his regular searches for rare and unusual stones. He passed away shortly after his find of a lifetime.
