Happy Tuesday again everyone! Time
has been just flying by this year and we’re already bringing to see some spring
like weather in the Ohio River Valley! In honor of the beautiful spring weather
we’ll be discussing an equally lovely gem this week. This gem has been an
enormously popular stone for thousands of years. We’ll be discussing the ravish
Many ancient societies valued the
amazing Ruby even higher than the spectacular Diamond. Rubies have been used to
symbolize the sun as a result of the vibrant colors that are seen in each gem.
In the past, rubies were worn as a charm to attempt to ward off the plague and
other diseases. Rubies have been used to honor the Italian goddess of the
twelfth night, Befana, and the Egyptian goddess of war, Sekhmet.
Rubies are also able to keep your
body safe and your mind free of sadness. Additionally, this wonderful gem will
stimulate the Base Chakra and increase vitality throughout your body and
spirit. Rubies will also help to create a clear mind that will enable you to
increase your concentration and create a sense of self-confidence. Every
natural Ruby is unique and beautiful in the “imperfections” within them. The
variations of color within the gem add to the individuality of each Ruby.
Rubies can served a wide variety of
purposes that add to the amazing value of the gem. They can be used in some
areas such as watchmaking and even in some medical instruments. However, simply
wearing a Ruby can help to sharpen your mind and bring a courageous attitude to
the wearer. Additionally, this July birthstone can be used to ward off
nightmares to the wearer.
