The Ruby Speaks of Love, Passion, Courage and Emotion
This gem has been considered the king of all gems and is believed to bestow good fortune to the wearer. The most valued gemstone is available in a variety of red hues. The most valuable color of Ruby is a “Brumese Ruby,” a rich, hot, full red color with a slight blue hue. The Mogok valley of Upper Burma is known as the source for the finest and rarest rubies known as “pigeon’s blood” because of the intense red color of the stone. Dark, brownish-red rubies are known to be found in Thailand. Burma and Thailand consider the ruby as their national stone.
According to ancient Easter legends, rubies were once believed to be “a deep drop of the heart’s blood of Mother Earth.” Ancient Asian stories said that the ruby was self-luminous and was called the “glowing stone” or “lamp stone.” An emperor of China once used a large ruby to light his chamber and it glowed as bright as day. Greek stories share that the female stork repaid the kindness of Heraclea by bringing her a ruby so bright that it lit up Heraclea’s room at night.
