July Birthstone - Ruby

Ruby is also the accepted anniversary gemstone for the 40th year. Ruby is know as the "Lord of the Gems" because of its rarity and beauty. Derived from the Latin word rubber, it simply means red. Ruby, like sapphire, is a variety of corundum and only exists as a true red in colour. The highest quality rubies are said to protect their owners from all kinds of misfortune. A fine ruby assured the owner he would live in harmony with his neighbours. It would protect his stature in life, his home and land. Many believed rubies possessed an inner flame which burned eternally.
