From ancient times, the Ruby signified power and vitality. It has been called "the king of gemstones." It is said that warriors embedded rubies in their skin to give them courage and protection when they went into battle. The ruby was also considered to be a talisman to ward off danger, evil and even bad dreams. One of this stone's alchemical properties is to impart a sense of bliss, as well as encouraging a desire for life. It will aid you by helping you to recharge your energy levels. This may be part of the reason why it has been a popular stone over the centuries.
