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 clever pendant pairs a dual-toned, chatoyant, Star Ruby with a deep red faceted Ruby. The asymmetrical S-like setting displays the stones in a soothing way. The detailed setting hangs from an elegant bail. It would compliment either formal or casual wear.
The oval is connected to the life cycle, as it has no beginning or end, and is commonly found in nature. The oval shape of the egg further connects to the life cycle, via sexual and feminine energy, the power of childbirth and creation. The number zero, a symbol of potential and shape of an embryo.
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".
