Crystals and Gemstones ROCK!

RUBY… Don’t take your aluminum oxide to town.

Happy July 2nd!

What do these stones all have in common?

Exactly… These beauties are all RUBIES, the birthstone for July.


Referred to as the Stone of Nobility, Prosperity, Courage and Leadership

Considered the most magnificent of all gems…the queen of stones and the stone of kings

Ancient Greeks called it the “mother of all gemstones” because of its beauty and rarity.

The Romans called it “a flower among stones.”

Rubies were once considered to be the perfect wedding stone.

In the Middle ages, rubies were used as protection against the plague. If the ruby’s color became darker, the wearer would go to another place to protect themselves from infection. When the stone returned back to its lighter color, they returned home.
