Of all the varieties of corundum, the most precious is blood-red stones, called rubies or red yachts. In 1887, the Russian researcher M.I. Pylyaev wrote that a high-quality ruby weighing 2 carats is much more expensive than the best diamond. And 10 carats are 5 times more costly than a diamond of similar weight.
Currently, this trend can also be traced to rare high-quality rubies.
Magicians considered the ruby to be a clot of the devil's blood, capable of giving unlimited power and irresistible effect on people. Therefore, it is not recommended for evil people to wear a ruby since it enhances these negative qualities.
Ruby is a stone of ardent and passionate love. Jewelry with rubies helps to concentrate sexual energy. It is believed that the ruby gives its owner the strength of a lion. The fearlessness of an eagle and the wisdom of a snake.
