Our ancient ancestors adored and treasured Rubies believing they held the power of life. Ruby is the traditional and modern July Birthstone, as well as the 15th & 40th Anniversary stones. Ruby is the red variety of the mineral Corundum. Corundum is colorless in its most pure form. Trace amounts of impurities determine if a gem corundum will be a red ruby or blue sapphire. The red color of Ruby is produced by the presence of Chromium in the gem. For a gem to be considered a Ruby, there must be enough chromium to give the gem a distinct red color. Rubies are an extremely desirable and popular stone due to their hardness, durability, luster, and rarity. Top grade Rubies are the most valuable of all colored gemstones.
In Sanskrit, Ruby is Ratnaraj, meaning “the king of gems”. Rubies are actually mentioned four times in the Bible. In the 1960s, the first laser was created using the red fluorescence light emitted by ruby. In ancient societies, warriors wore Rubies for protection in battle and also used Rubies to promote peace among enemies.
Rubies are a magical gem of passion and empowerment. Ruby helps us find passion and pleasure in life by empowering you to express love freely and love your body. Ruby strengthens your life force prana energy and enhances the flow of chi.
