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.

How To Use Ruby
To rebuild your energy balance, use six rubies as an array: one on the top of your head, one under your feet, one next to your knees, and one next to your elbows. If you lie on a piece of yellow cloth, the healing effect will be magnified.
To increase the ability to achieve the goal, place 12 crystals in a circular array around the body, with the crystal tip facing outwards, and then place a ruby on the heart chakra area. It is better to lie on the white cloth.
Sapphire and ruby have no difference in crystal shape, but the color of sapphire is usually blue or purple.
Zircon, spinel, garnet, and ruby tourmaline are similar in color to rubies, but stone rubies (unless the top ones) have a characteristic metallic halo.
