The Ruby Stone
The birthstone of July is magnificent Ruby, one of the most valuable gemstones, highly revered for its extraordinary beauty, explaining its consistent popularity. Representing love, health and wisdom, passion and emotion this gemstone is considered the king of all gemstones.
Rubies have been the prized possession of emperors and kings throughout the ages and it is believed that wearing one fine red ruby gives good fortune to the owner, because of their rarity compared to large diamonds, emeralds and sapphires.
The Burmese Ruby is the most valuable of all Rubies, because of its remarkable colour quality, holding a rich red colour with a slight blue hint.
In the Orient, Rubies were believed to contain the spark of life ‘A deep drop of the hearts blood of mother earth’
How are the qualities of rubies similar to Cancerians?
Like the crab which signifies the Cancer sign, ruby’s hard exterior protects an inner beauty that exists nowhere else. When a Cancerian wears a ruby, a protection of your feelings occur, allowing you to be yourself as rubies represent passion and emotion.
Cancerians are intuitive and imaginative, they’re loyal, sympathetic, dedicated and persuasive and they love their family and home.
The Crab is known to be as indecisive, temperamental and insecure. They fear rejection by their loved ones. They also can be quite moody and pessimistic and suspicious as well as quite sensitive and emotional.
Cancerians will quickly withdraw and retreat into safety whenever it is faced with conflict or dilemmas. Nonetheless, persistent determination is one of the greatest strengths of those born in July. Cancerians may not appear to have great ambitions, on surface, yet their desires and goals are deep and profound, much like where rubies are naturally found. At work, the Cancerians make for good managers and organizers, and are often seen taking good care of their co-workers and maintaining friendly, family like relations with them. Most Cancers, however, do not like to be guided or bossed around.
