It’s your turn July babies! Today we’re featuring your birthstone, the ruby. The stone’s exquisite color definitely makes it stand out from other gems. In addition to that, it is one of few stones that is surrounded by love and myths. You will discover that there are many meanings, healing, and metaphysical properties about the gem. Let’s start unraveling Rosettes!
It would be great to know the basics of a ruby right? Rubies are a variety of corundum. Corundum is an aluminum oxide mineral that is responsible for giving the ruby its rich, red color.
The stone’s color can range anywhere from a pinkish-red, slightly purplish-red to a highly saturated red. One of the most highly coveted shades is called pigeon blood due to its distinct color. The closest to a true red is most valued. If the stone appears more purplish or orangish, the value of the ruby gemstone decreases. In addition, the color saturation may not be too light or too dark for best value. The ideal ruby is true red in color with medium saturation.
Fun fact! Many cultures have considered the ruby to be the stone of kings. It’s no wonder because of the gemstone’s association with power, protection, and wealth!
The motto for rubies is “follow your bliss”! The gemstone balances your heart, emotions, and instills confidence so that you can follow your dreams and achieve your goals. There’s no mountain that you can’t climb Rosettes!
One of the other associations with a ruby is love, especially faithful passionate commitment and closeness. The stone will help you see the true nature of love as well as open up to and receive Divine Love. Is it a coincidence that the gem happens to be the same color as a heart? We think not!
The healing properties of a ruby include strengthening your courage, happiness, passion, power, and generosity. The ruby stone is meant to ward off negativity and allow you to stay positive during challenging situations. Good vibes only!
If you have been feeling weak physically, mentally, or emotionally, this gem will help you gain strength. Let the ruby work its magic and you’ll will be recharged in no time! When times get tough, you can turn to the ruby to help regain your focus.
The three main metaphysical properties are improved clarity of mind, increased concentration, and motivation. The ruby is associated with your base, or root, and heart chakra. It is meant to increase your vitality and chi, aka the life force energy, throughout the physical body and spirit. When it comes to any meditation ritual, some may find the ruby to be too invigorating to be effective.
