Ruby is one of the most significant gems in history. It has been known to mankind since ancient times. Its glory as a royal stone has been imperishable since the beginning of history. In all probability, the association of rubies with the month of July is partly due to the connection between the color red and summer.
FACTS ABOUT RUBY
The name ruby comes from the Latin word for red. Its specific color is usually associated with the saturation of the blood, the warmth of the sun and the brilliance of the fire. Most of the beliefs and supernatural powers attributed to rubies are derived from them. Ancient people once called the ruby "the stone of kings" and "the most precious of the 12 precious stones created by God." They were believed to bring good luck and divine protection to the warriors. The association with the sun and fire brought a special homage to the ruby as a stone of the life-giving forces of nature and the passion from which life is born.
Over the centuries, its value has established and even grown. In Christendom, it is one of the "cardinal stones", often inlaid with gold rings and decorative ornaments. Gold rings with rubies were also worn by royalty and rulers as a symbol of their sole power and right to rule. The ceremonial crowns are inlaid with rubies so that they go on the red robes of the monarch.
Ruby is a variation of the mineral corundum, as is sapphire. This stone is the third hardest in nature after diamond and musanite. The red color is due to the content of chromium, and the shade varies from pink to deep red. Ruby is a rare stone. Ruby jewelry is usually made of stones up to 3 carats. The most common are earrings with rubies and rings with rubies. Rubies are often combined with diamonds and other colored stones, with the emphasis on the red glow.
