Ruby - the passionate birthstone for July 
Ruby Ring by NodeformWeddings
Fire.
Passion.
Power.
Blood.
Fertility.
This is ruby, lord of gems and the birthstone for July.  Implant a ruby under your skin like the warriors of ancient Burma for courage and protection in battle.  Bury one under your home to bring good fortune.  Grind up a ruby and drink the elixir to bring passion and fertility.  Or… just wear one on your finger, if you dare.

As one of the toughest and most durable gemstones, ruby makes excellent jewelry.  Ruby, like sapphire, is composed of the mineral corundum.  Trace impurities incorporated into corundum crystals during their formation give the mineral its color, with chromium oxide causing the red color associated with ruby.  Corundum of any other color, including pink, blue, purple, yellow, green, and white, is called sapphire.
