Same as sapphires, rubies are branches of the corundum mineral family. There is just a small distinctive difference; rubies come in one glimmering shade: red. There’s nothing more attractive like the bright red of a ruby, and attaining an untreated ruby gem is exceptionally unique and singular. Its mystical powers help the wearer to attain success and growth in businesses, jobs, recognized social status in masses, authority, and self-confidence.
