Ruby name comes from ruber, Latin for red. The color of a ruby is due to the element chromium and it’s a variety of the mineral corundum (like Sapphire). It’s from Trigonal system and crystallise in Hexagonal red crystals. These crystals can be cutted in slices and will look like the one in this ring.
Many cultures have long considered ruby a stone of kings. Not surprisingly, ruby symbolism and lore have many associations with power, wealth, and their protection. Possessing a ruby purportedly benefited and protected the owner’s estates and assisted in the accumulation of wealth.
When worn as a talisman, ruby’s mystical properties extended to personal protection. People believed wearing the stone on the left, the heart side, would allow the bearers to live peacefully. The blood-colored stone would preserve them from all perils, even their homes from storms.
So, if you want a gem to increase your wealth, impress your rivals, and protect yourself from harm, the legends point to ruby.
