THE RUBY RED MONTH OF JULY
The ruby, also known as the stone of romance is one of the highest valued coloured gemstones in the world. Rubies have been prized for centuries due to their durability and treasured rich red hue and lustre often referred to as ‘pigeon’s blood’.
The most important sources for rubies include Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Sri Lanka and Tanzania.
Legend has it, that the owner of a ruby is assured a life of peace and plenty. The vivid red colour of ruby also means that it is associated with desire, and it is thought by some to be a stone of love with an aphrodisiac effect. The ruby has long been attributed with the ability to protect its wearer from injury and to cure blood disorders and circulatory problems. It is also said to provide its wearer with energy, emotional strength, positive attitude, heightened awareness and focus.
Rubies are tough and durable, so they do not require any special care. Always remove any jewellery or gemstones before exercising, cleaning or engaging in harsh physical activities such as sport. Do not expose rubies to acid and store rubies away from other gemstones to avoid scratches.
