Ruby  is the most valuable variety of the corundum mineral species, and it is the birthstone for July as well as the gemstone that celebrates the 15th and 40th anniversaries.

Ruby is one of the most historically significant colored stones. Rubies are mentioned four times in the Bible, in association with attributes like #beauty and #wisdom. and, in the ancient language of Sanskrit, ruby is called "#Ratnaraj", (king of precious stones). Ruby has accumulated a host of legends over the centuries.

Ancient Hindus believed that those who offered fine rubies to the god Krishna were granted rebirth as emperors. while, people in India believed that rubies enabled their owners to live in #peace with their enemies.

Ruby retained its importance with the birth of the western world and became one of the most sought-after gems of European #royalty and the upper classes. Many medieval Europeans wore rubies to guarantee #health, #wealth, #wisdom, and #success in love.
