Ruby Mineralogy and Meaning
All natural Rubies have imperfections within them, including color impurities and inclusions of Rutile needles known as “silk.” These inclusions help distinguish natural Ruby from synthetics and when structurally oriented so the light shines off the “silk” in certain ways, the inclusions can increase the rarity and value of the stone, such as Ruby whose inclusions form the shape of a six-pointed star.
The raw Ruby crystals in this collection are cut and polished on the top and bottom of the crystal, but the hexagonal sides are original to the raw gemstone. These natural edges help emphasize the emotional qualities of the gemstone, and remind us how we are each unique in our own pattern and structure.
This gem mineral can enhance our personal fortitude helping to amplify courage and strength. The changeable red tones of Ruby resonate with the spark and zest for life, and can help encourage us to follow our inner flame. In difficult situations the tough nature of the mineral itself becomes a symbol of our own ability to overcome negative aspects in the moment. Ruby is a reminder to develop tolerance and stay strong in the face of change.
