The Month of the Ruby

This month's birthstone is the ruby. Rubies can come in different colors from a brownish red to pink, but the most highly prized are the deep red (or pigeon blood-red) rubies. Since red is the color of love, rubies have long been associated with everlasting love and in ancient times rubies were also thought to have magical powers that brought good luck and good health. Rubies, because of their specific red coloring, were also used to make the first lasers! Love and lasers, what else could you ask for in a birthstone? So to all my friends and followers with birthdays in July, I dedicate this mini treasury to you! Happy Birthday! :)
