Stone Lore: Diamonds are all very well, but according to legend, it’s ruby that is a king’s best friend. In some traditions, ruby makes a king invincible and heal battle wounds; this is one reason why it’s been popular on crowns and other items worn by royalty. Some say ruby originated as the third eye of dragons and wyverns, and sculptors also place one on the Buddha’s brow to represent the third eye and reincarnation. Ruby is not only a stone of power, it’s one that helps its wearer stand up to adversity–various legends say it can staunch bleeding, resist the effects of poison or allow you to live peacefully in the midst of enemies. And as if that weren’t cool enough, ruby can also be used to treat flatulence. How’s that for a range of uses?
Notes: Ruby is a variety of Corundum.
