Ruby Healing Properties

These vivid red tumbled Rubies are sure to delight your Inner Queen or King! They're tiny but mighty, each one a round pebble with a nice heavy weight. On some of them you can see minor inclusions of Rutile (that's the black needles and spots). All natural Ruby has Rutile inclusions, it's actually one of the ways that you can tell that a Ruby is natural instead of lab-grown. Sometimes you can see the Rutile with the naked eye, while other times you need a jeweler's loupe. A few of these gems are Star Rubies with a silvery shimmer because of microscopic inclusions. Each one is beautiful and ready to bring joyful abundance to your life!

Ethically Sourced Ruby

Know where your crystals come from

This Ruby comes from artisanal miners in Odisha, India. It is sorted by hand from gravel in various rivers and streams. This type of mining has the lowest environmental impact and is low risk for miners.

Learn More About Ethical Mining

This lapidary hand-polishes stones in Mumbai, India. It is a woman-owned and family-run business. Factory workers are paid fairly. The Lapidary is also an exporter that sells at gem shows in the United States and Japan.

Learn More About Ethical Lapidaries

I first met this source at the 2014 Tucson Gem Show. It was my first buying trip for my own store and I was nervous. Most lapidary owners were brisk and impatient with my questions, especially when I asked about the mines and the supply chains. But one man stood out to me as particularly patient and kind. He had been a wholeseller for over twenty years, yet he was happy to meet someone brand-new to the industry.

He took time to talk to me about the stones. They came from his home country of India and he was able to tell me exactly which state or territory each one came from and some of the conditions at the individual mines. When I told him that I wanted to source ethically, he said that it would be difficult, but that it was a worthwhile challenge. He made me feel like I could succeed, both at ethical sourcing and at being a business owner. I looked forward to a long business relationship with him. Sadly, he died suddenly in 2016.

I stayed in touch with his family and in 2017 met his wife, teenage daughter, and his father. This three-generation family has picked up the pieces and learned how to run the business. His wife had never worked before, but she gracefully stepped into her new role as a business owner. Her father-in-law offers practical and moral support, but makes sure that everyone knows that SHE is the boss and that checks should be written directly to her. The family continues to be supportive of my efforts to ethically source. More than any other lapidary, they are willing to speak openly with me about the difficult parts of the industry. They have invited me to visit them in India, to visit the mines and their lapidary. The daughter is now a GIA (Gemological Institute of America) Graduate and is interested in reiki and other healing modalities. As she has grown up, she has become increasingly concerned about ethical issues.

Ruby Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published July 2014  •  Updated November 2022  •  Read Time: 10 minutes
Ruby is the red variety of the mineral Corundum. Scientifically, it is identical to Sapphire, the only difference being the color.  Ruby is one of the most valuable precious gemstones and only 1% has the transparency required for fine jewelry.  It has one of the longest histories of all healing stones, and is mentioned in the Holy Books of all five of the world’s major religions! It has a bright and vivacious energy that encourages us to love deeply and be a good friend to all we meet.  It is an incredible tool for manifestation, including dreams of abundance and prosperity.  This is especially true if we want to use our wealth to improve the lives of others.
