Can I wear my ruby jewelry everyday?
rubies are rated “excellent” for everyday wear. Avoid exposure to heat and contact with chemicals. To clean, gently scrub with a soft toothbrush and a solution of mild dish soap and warm water, or clean in an at-home ultrasonic unit.
How are rubies formed?
Rubies are made from the mineral corundum or aluminum oxide. When rubies are treated to extreme heat and pressure, they are formed under the earth’s surface. Corundum is made of densely packed oxygen and aluminum atoms. Typically, this results in a colorless substance. However, when some of the aluminum atoms are replaced by other minerals or substances, the stone can take on other colors. This is how the ruby is formed and gets its deep red hue. Specifically, the presence of chromium creates a deep red color. Rare orange and pink shades of ruby are created by the presence of chromium and ferric iron. If 1% of the aluminum atoms are replaced by chromium atoms, the ruby forms a deep red color.
What do rubies mean spiritually?
The ruby is known as a protective stone that can bring happiness and passion into the wearer’s life. Apart from its red color, this is why the ruby makes a perfect gift for a loved one or on occasions such as Valentine’s Day or an anniversary. Because the ruby’s hue is close to the color of blood, which carries oxygen to all parts of the body, the gemstone also represents vitality and vigor; it is believed that the stone can align and lend energy to the body. The ruby is also believed to protect the wearer from negative entities that leach positive energy, promoting spiritual vitality and wellness overall. Since discovering ruby, the gemstone has been thought to bring luck, good fortune, and love. In Russia, it is considered to be a stone of excellent omen. It is believed to balance the interaction between the physical manifest world and the unmanifest spiritual or astral world.
