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).
These mini ruby chips are adorable, and show their color off well. They are lightly tumbled for a shiny finish. These would be great for making jewelry or orgonite.
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".
