Formerly used by the inhabitants of Burma as a talisman against disease, bad luck and wounds, Rubies were known in ancient times as drops of blood from the heart of mother earth.
Over time we find many properties in rubies, and the four that stand out the most are:
- Protection. If you are lucky enough to wear a ruby in your jewelry and in contact with your skin, you can feel the protection it gives you. It also works against negative energies, providing harmony in the wearer's life.
- Emotional benefits. Another benefit is that it strengthens willpower and self-confidence, improves concentration, promotes motivation and transmits calmness.
- Passion and symbol of blood. Its reddish color is related to blood, that is why ruby represents pure, strong and passionate love. It also promotes physical and spiritual love, seeking harmony between both. Perfect as a gift for your partner.
- Healing: although science does not want to confirm it, ruby is credited with stimulating circulation and digestion, the production of white and red blood cells and keeping hormones in balance. The ruby and its positive properties will fill you with energy, courage, power and courage.
