The name Ruby comes from the Latin word "ruber," which means "red". Rubies are pinkish red to blood-red colored gemstones, a variety of the mineral corundum (aluminum oxide). They are one of the most popular traditional gemstones and have been used in religious and cultural contexts throughout history. Rubies have been associated with various beliefs and legends. Some thought that rubies held an inextinguishable flame burning within the stone, even shining through clothing and able to boil water. In the past, rubies were believed to bring health, wealth, wisdom, and success in love. In India, people believed that rubies enabled their owners to live in peace with their enemies, and in Burma, warriors wore rubies for invincibility in battle. Today, rubies continue to be a symbol of passion, making them an ideal romantic gift, and are also associated with wealth and success.
