A Ruby is a red precious gemstone made of aluminum oxide. The value and price of Rubies increase depending on their color. The Ruby is the birthstone of July, which includes those born under the zodiac sign of Cancer.
Raw Rubies are used in crystal healing for balancing the heart chakra. Emotionally and spiritually, Rubies can help distress and alleviate pain and suffering which stem from a blocked heart chakra. They can also help to lessen anxiety because of emotional issues.
Rubies have been known to bring health, energy, happiness, balance, passion, protection, and abundance. They can also be used to stimulate creativity and aid in allowing oneself to dive deep into their passions while experiencing great success.
Those born under water signs such as Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces can benefit by working with Rubies. Those also born under Capricorn and Sagittarius can also benefit because those signs can sometimes suffer from emotional upset and depression/anxiety. Rubies can assist with living in the moment instead of constantly worrying about the future. They can bring prosperity and happiness, thereby benefitting anyone who works with them or wears them.
Rubies are very common in jewelry, and are beautiful in the raw form and cut/polished/faceted forms as well. They are not recommended for gem elixirs because of the aluminum content, but can be used in the indirect method of elixir which can be created by placing the gemstone near the elixir in order for it to absorb the wonderful energy.
