About Ruby:

Mohs scale hardness: 9

A ruby is a pink to blood-red coloured gemstone, a variety of the mineral corundum. Other varieties of gem-quality corundum are called Sapphires. The name ruby comes from the Latin word ruber, which means red.

The fiery and captivating ruby is a stone of nobility, considered the most magnificent of all gems, the queen of stones and the stone of kings. It is said that the powerful gem encourages passion and a zest for life and improves motivation, setting of realistic goals and is a stone of abundance and success in business.

Ruby is the traditional birthstone for July and is also a 40th anniversary gemstone.
