The Crimson Balmung is a reward for completing the miniquest Koschei's Troubles. It can be changed into the Achromatic Balmung by right clicking and selecting the "Toggle-colour" option.

When used on dagannoth, all enhanced Balmungs have a 45% bonus to hit chance,[1] and deal 45% more auto-attack damage, or 35% against Dagannoth Supreme.[2] With abilities, the extra damage is 22.5%, or 17.5% against Dagannoth Supreme.

If your Strength level is below 90, boosting your Strength will not allow you to obtain the jewel and the Crimson Balmung.
