If you are born in the month of July then your birthstone is Ruby.
One of the more well-known gems, rubies are associated with love and passion.
The gleaming ruby should adorn, all those who in July are born. A life lived with vitality, noble and lovely they will be.
Ruby gets its colour from the trace element chromium, the larger amount of chromium, the stronger the red. These red gems were known as the ‘king of precious stones’ in ancient India due to their rarity and hardness. Past centuries believed that this gem could predict danger. Ruby is believed to bring health, wisdom, wealth and success in love to those who wear this wonderful stone.
It is traditionally given for those celebrating their 15th and 40th wedding anniversaries.
