Behind the Sparkle – The Beauty of Ruby
Today we will be talking about one of the most popular gemstones, and this months Birthstone: Ruby.

Rubies are considered one of the most important gems in the colored stone market because it can command the highest per-carat price.

In its purest form, the mineral corundum is colorless (known as white sapphire,) and in comparison to ruby, inexpensive, but trace elements of chromium create the beautiful ruby red color, that demands our attention.

If there is a low saturation of chromium, making the mineral pink, its no longer considered a Ruby, but rather: Pink Sapphire.

Big Brothers, Big Sisters
On today’s broadcast, we visit with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Twin Tiers.

Even though the majority of us here in Tioga County are not rolling in big bucks, it’s still much easier to throw money at problems in our community than it is to give the most valuable thing that we have, TIME. But, in reality, it doesn’t take a huge investment of our time to change a kids life and light his or her pathway to a bright future. The rewards for you will turn out to be quite surprising. It very well may be one of the most fulfilling investments that you will ever make.
