It is only coincidental that ruby is both red in color and gives off a red fluorescence; however this coincidence is responsible in part for its intense red shine. This red fluorescence gives ruby an advantage compared with other red stones, such as tourmaline and garnet since it covers up dark areas (extinction) and actually makes the stone glow with a rich crimson hue.
