A red jewel stone meant he was a key figure among the great. In the 1880's, French jewelers called the ruby the gem of gems or the dearly loved stone. The name ruby comes from the Latin word ruber, which means red.
Ruby stone has a vibration that radiates with an intensity that projects energy and enthusiasm for life. It encourages leadership and increased concentration, with sharpness of intellect.
Although the finest rubies come from the Mogok region in Burma, many beautiful rubies also come from Thailand, today’s main source for rubies, as well as from India, Tanzania, Madagascar, Russia, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Kenya, Mexico, Afghanistan, and North Carolina and Pakistan.
