Historical Folklore

Royals such as Queen Elizabeth I of England and Queen Mary of Scots wore rubies as a tool for protection. It was believed that rubies would darken in hue if they were in danger, making them valuable for warning royals of coming assassination attempts. As such, these gems became staples of royal crowns.

Ancient warriors are believed to have worn rubies, thinking their energy would make them invincible in battle.

Medieval Europeans wore rubies to obtain good protection, wealth, wisdom, and success.


Rubies are a red variety of corundum, a rock-forming mineral. It is closely related to sapphire, a blue corundum. They are typically found in the Middle East. At Crystal Life, we sell commercial quality ruby.

Chakra Association

Rubies are most commonly associated with the base, sacral, and heart chakras.


You can place this stone in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.

Astrological Association

Leo, Cancer, Capricorn, and Aries are all believed to have connections with ruby.

Health Folklore

Folklore states that this gem can strengthen the immune system, promote detoxification, and aid the lymphatic system, circulatory system, and adrenals.
