Ruby is the red variety of corundum (aluminum oxide) ranging from deep to pale red, at times with a purple tinge. Ruby with minute needle-like inclusions of rutile is called star ruby, showing a six-rayed star when cut in cabochons. Sri Lanka has mined rubies since the 8th century BCE. Other ruby localities include India, Myanmar, Thailand, Afghanistan, Madagascar, Vietnam, Cambodia, North Carolina and Montana. Ruby’s stimulation of the root (1st) chakra adds vital life force to efforts at change, keeping one free from vulnerability to indecision and pessimism.
