JULY BIRTHSTONE THE RUBY

By in Uncategorized

The birthstone of July, the ruby, has been prized for centuries as a symbol of love and immortality.

The color of a ruby can be described as blood-red or fire-red. Color that burns along the veins, and gives brightness to the night. If you’re looking for the color of life itself look no further than red. The gemstone that brings red to vivid life can have only one name: Ruby.

The “king of gems,” Ruby, is one of the world’s oldest and most revered gemstones. It is also one of the rarest, as red is the rarest occurring color in gems. It owes its startling color to the presence of the mineral Chromium. Rubies with hardly any inclusions are so rare that large stones of good color fetch higher prices at auction than even diamonds.

Fiery and romantic, showing brilliant depth and intensity, the red hue of Ruby is certain to draw attention. Its symbolic association with passion sends a drop-dead message of glamor and femininity.
