Ruby comes from the Latin "rubens" meaning red. It is a variety of the corundum species.
Throughout history, ruby has always symbolized power and protection. When worn as a talisman, ruby was believed to help protect warriors in battle. Ruby is thought to be protective of home, possessions and family. Ruby is said to stimulate heart chakra and bring spiritual wisdom while shielding against psychic attacks.
When it comes to physical healing, this gem can strengthen the heart, muscles, and ventricles. As the vibrant deep red hues suggest, it's a bloodstone which means it can encourage everything from circulation to menstrual pain.
Ruby is a stone of good fortune and this means fortune for the body, mind, and soul.
