From the GIA regarding "Pigeon's Blood Rubies" :

....Pigeon’s blood is the term applied to the most highly saturated colour and natural red fluorescence possible in a ruby.

The brightest and most valuable shade of red called blood-red or pigeon blood, commands a large premium over other rubies of similar quality.

Color is the most significant factor affecting a ruby’s value. The finest ruby has a pure, vibrant red to slightly purplish red color. As the color becomes too orangy or more purplish, the ruby moves down the quality scale. The highest-quality rubies have vivid color saturation.

The color must be neither too dark nor too light to be considered finest quality. If the color is too dark it has a negative effect on the stone’s brightness. At the other extreme, if the color is too light, the stone is considered pink sapphire, even if color strength or intensity is high.

Some gem dealers debate the borderline between ruby and pink sapphire. Historically, the word ruby referred to shades of red, which technically included pink. There are also cultural differences in the interpretation of ruby versus pink sapphire. In some gem-producing nations such as Sri Lanka, pink colors were always considered ruby, while in many consuming countries it is classified as pink sapphire.

The GIA Laboratory uses a controlled set of comparison stones called masterstones to determine if corundum is ruby or if it’s pink, purple, or orange sapphire. The laboratory grades its masterstones on the principle that red must be the dominant hue before a stone can be called a ruby. In the gem trade, though, identification of the dominant hue is subject to personal perception.

Blood is another symbol of ruby’s color. Descriptions have compared ruby to the “blood from the right ventricle” or the first two drops of blood from a freshly killed pigeon. Historically, the term “pigeon’s blood” described the red to slightly purplish or pinkish red color of rubies with a soft, glowing, red fluorescence. .....

From the GIA:

GIA, after developing a protocol to carefully define the tone, saturation, and fluorescence of particular rubies agaisnt a set of "Pigeon's Blood" master, began to describe rubies that matched specific masterstones as "Pigeon's Blood" in the comments section Ruby Reports.....they usually have a strong red fluorescence when excited by UV light, further enhancing this unique color in certain lighting conditions.

....The historic term" Pigeon's Blood", as applied to rubies , is a specific color description that falls within the narrow limits of "Vivid Red".
