Ruby is a vibrant red, precious gemstone. Rubies and sapphires are forms of corundum, a valued mineral. Along with finding ruby crystals by themselves, you can also find them embedded in fuchsite or zoisite. Rubies found this way can be more affordable yet still contain all the properties of a single ruby. It is a crystal associated with the root and heart chakras. Ruby helps with all types of love, opening the heart, expressing love, compassion, trust, courage, forgiveness, grounding, clearing blocked energies and emotions, and connecting to spiritual and Divine love. If you feel stuck in any emotion, wear ruby jewelry or carry a gem with you or in a pocket to help you break free of the emotion. It can be worn as any jewelry such as necklace, bracelet, or ring on your commitment finger. Place it on or near your root or heart chakra for effectiveness as well. It is an amplifying stone that works with sapphire and rose quartz. Ruby can appear naturally, tumbled and polished, or cut.
