Ruby Meaning and Healing Properties

Introduction To Ruby

Ruby is a small variant of corundum, especially the color of chromium oxide contained in it (the blue variant of corundum is sapphire, in addition to yellow and colorless corundum). High-quality gem-quality rubies with brilliant colors and translucent are very rare, so their value is very high. Most rubies are red or blue-purple opaque and have a heavy metallic halo, but even low-quality rubies have a mouth-watering beauty that is irresistible. Ruby is traditionally considered as the stone of the sun, which can give people wealth and strength, longevity and health.
