Ruby is the name given to red gem quality corundum. These can be of varying shades of reds to pink. The best rubies are those, which have mystical deep red colour. In Sanskrit, Ruby
is called by the name Manikya. In Urdu and Persian it is called Yakoot.
The finest rubies are found in Burma. Thailand, Afghanistan, Vietnam and Pakistan also produce bright rubies. India, USA, Australia and Norway also produce rubies, which are dark to
opaque at times.
The chemical composition of ruby is Aluminium Oxide and the formula is Al203 The specific gravity is 4.00 and the refractive index is 1.76-1.77. The hardness of ruby is 9 with a
crystal structure of Trigonal.
The identification of Ruby is a matter of experience. For an ordinary person access to gemmological investigations is not available. A genuine Ruby if kept on the eye will give a cool
feeling continuously while a fake one will become warm after some time. A well cut Ruby will show the same colour at the edges, while an imitation piece will show yellowish edges.
Moreover, a Ruby when placed in a milk pot will show the milk as red.
Ruby is the stone for Sun and is a precious stone. This gem should be worn in the ritualistic way, which has been used for ages and has been found to energise the stone. The ritual
of energising Ruby should be done during the auspicious moments of Ravipushya. But this happens only once in a year. Otherwise, consecration of the gem can be done on Sunday or during
the period when there is influence of Pushya constellation
The ruby, also called Manek/Manickam, is said to be the stone that bestows name, fame and recognition, besides of course favours from state and government agencies. It confers on the
individual the highest position, if sought. The native is never haunted by any fear of poison. The mental thinking becomes easy going and person starts enjoying sound sleep as well.

inflammation, bleeding, infectious diseases, typhoid, bubonic plague, leukaemia, sickle cell anaemia, schizophrenia, heart attack, diabetes. It restores the balance of nerves, liver,
spleen, heart, thymus, spinal column, adrenals, and cholesterol.
