Rubies are mentioned four times in the Bible. Ruby was said to be the most precious of the 12 stones created by God. Hindus regarded Rubies as the most valued gem. It was called ‘Ratnaraj’, meaning ‘king of the precious Gems’, and later ‘ratnanayaka’, meaning ‘leader of all precious stones’. In the Harita Smriti, it is written that ‘He who worships Krishna with Rubies will be reborn as a powerful emperor’.

Rubies have long been associated with blood. Among Burmese soldiers, it was believed that wearing a Ruby on the left would make the wearer invincible. This belief was so strong that some soldiers inserted Rubies into their flesh under the skin. They then were believed to be safe from wounds, and were said to be very fierce in battle as well.

The ancient Greek philosopher Theophrastus (371-287 BC) wrote that Rubies could be male or female. The ‘male’ stones were darker and more brilliant than the ‘female’ stones, which are lighter with a weaker luster.
