Ruby is a pink to blood-red colored Gemstone and a variety of the mineral Corundum (aluminum oxide). Ruby is a traditional Cardinal Gem along with Amethyst, Sapphire, Emerald, and Diamond. Rubies have a Mohs Hardness of 9, making them one of the hardest gemstones right below Diamonds (which sit at 10.0 on the hardness scale).
This pendant is composed of a raspberry pink Ruby cabochon set into a classically designed sterling silver setting. The pendant has a casual look and would look great on a silver chain with a pair of jeans!
Ruby is commonly associated with invigoration, renewing energy, and inspiring passion. Ruby is connected with the Heart Chakra and is thought to balance heart energy, and encourage "following your heart".
Emerald is the traditional birthstone for May and is called the "Stone of Successful Love" because it is said to open and nurture the heart; it makes sense that it's associated with the Heart Chakra! The Emerald is considered a very powerful stone in many cultures, being thought of as bringing abundance, prosperity, and good fortune!
