Beginning in the mid-1990’s, mines near Songea began to produce material with a dark, garnety color veering towards orange. While this material is ruby of a sort, it is marginal due to its high Fe content.

Songea, produces green, color change, and red sapphires (rubies). The Songea deposit is geologically unrelated to the other deposits.

Tanzania produces ruby that are orange to brownish, but some are bright red like the Burma gems.
