The color is pigeon blood. VS quality.

Your picture makes it look like the "pigeon" may have been a pink flamingo and the clarity SI. Do you have a cert from a major lab ? If not then you'll probably have trouble selling it at the prices that your description would warrant. The price for a stone as you've described could be $50,000 per carat of as low as $1000 per carat, (much lower if glass filled). I'd suggest getting a cert from the GIA and then have it appraised by a qualified appraiser who can see it in person.

Maybe it's a bad angle but that doesn't look like an emerald cut ruby

$50K per carat? Is there market for that good price?

Hi I have posted some more picture.

Michael - Yes you are right. It is SI grade and there is color zoning as well. But the color I am not too sure if it is electric magenta or hot electric pink.

Irish - Maybe you are right. This is not emerald cut. =(

I'd suggest you to get it certified. Its a cushion cut, not emerald cut. If that is an unheated Ruby, count me in as a buyer!
