July Birthstone - Beautiful Rubies

This bold and brilliant stone is a variety of the mineral corundum (aluminium oxide) and can be pink through to blood-red.

Sapphires are from the same 'family' as the ruby and amethyst, sapphire, emerald, and diamond are part of the traditional cardinal gems.

The word 'ruby' comes from 'ruber' which is Latin for red.

Rubies inherit their colour due to the element chromium.

Burma was once the world's main source for rubies. Rubies have also been found in Thailand, Cambodia, Afghanistan, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, India, Namibia, Japan, Scotland, Madagascar, Nepal, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, The Republic of Macedonia and the United States.

Rubies are said to be associated with life force, courage, passion, strength, enthusiasm, adventurousness and protectiveness.

Physically, they increase the chi in the body to stimulate health in all organs and systems.

Emotionally they inspire self-confidence, zest for life, trust and willingness.

Spiritually they instil courage and altruism, bringing forth heroism.

As the birthstone for July, ruby jewellery makes a wonderful birthday present, anniversary present or push present for babies born during the month.
