About the gemstone
Star ruby is a rare variety of ruby. These magnificent gems display a sharp six-rayed star which seems to glide magically across the surface of the gem when the latter is moved. This is caused due to an optical phenomenon known as "Asterism". The star is best visible when the star ruby is seen in a single light source such as sunlight and spotlight.
Ruby is the birthstone for July. It is an activator of passion, confidence, determination and adventure. It helps you develop courage and face your fears, moving through them and experiencing the renewed vitality on the other side. Stimulating enthusiasm, willingness to try new things, and the fortitude to see them through, ruby is a powerhouse of life-force energy.
