Ruby : The King of Gemstones

Updated on June 13, 2016

Ruby: An Introduction

Ruby is a wonderful gemstone which gives its wearer fame, authority, regal powers, dignity, government favours and an untiring energy. If Opal is known as the "Queen of Gems" then Ruby is known to be the "King of Gems." Ruby strengthens the attributes of Sun in its wearer and as Sun is considered to be the King of all planets, this is why it is quite logical to call it the "King of gems."

Who Should Wear a Ruby

Ruby is the birthstone of Leo (Simha) rashi, however natives of other zodiac signs can also wear a Ruby depending upon the placement of Sun in their horoscope. It is however important to wear it after recommendation of an expert astrologer. Wearing it without proper astrological analysis of your horoscope can bring adverse effects as well.

Since it strengthens the attributes of Sun in the horoscope of a person, it is beneficial for all those natives who have a weak but friendly sun in their horoscope.

Depending upon the placement of Sun in the horoscope of an individual it is has wonderful effects for those who are:

1. Looking forward to win an election.

2. Trying to get a Government Job.

3. Looking for a promotion.

4. Film Stars, Media folks etc.

5. Trying to improve the life conditions of their father.

What Type of Ruby Should You Wear

Colour is the most significant factor in determining the quality of Ruby. The best quality Ruby has a pure vibrant red to a purple-red colour. If the colour becomes too orange or purple then it signify a poorer quality. The colour must be neither too dark nor too light. 1 carat of Ruby should be worn for every 12 Kg of body weight. For an example if the weight of a person is 60 Kg then he should wear 5 carats of Ruby.

Substitutes of Ruby

Following are good substitutes of Ruby. Wearing them will also give partial to significant results of a real Ruby.

1. Star Ruby

2. Red Garnet

3. Red Zircon

4. Red Onyx.

How to Purchase an Authentic Ruby

It is always advisable to purchase a Ruby from a leading vendor who can give you proper "Certificate of Authenticity."Meanwhile there are some leading Vendors who give you a money back guarantee for any authenticity related issues. So take utmost care about authenticity while purchasing a Ruby. Usually the big and leading brands in the industry take proper care about the authenticity of Gemstones to maintain their reputation and goodwill in the market.

Procedure to Wear a Ruby

It should be worn with Gold, Silver or Panchdhatu (five metals). It should be worn on some Sunday during the Sunrise. You should choose a Sunday during the Waxing Moon (Shukla Paksha). Right handed people should wear it in the ring finger of their right hand. Left handed people should wear it in the right finger of their left hand.

What If You Are Already Wearing a Ruby And It is Not Working

Here is a very interesting question that what if you are already wearing a Ruby and it is not working. There can be following probable reasons:

1. Your Ruby is not authentic.

2. You have worn it without consulting an expert astrologer and it actually doesn't suits you.

3. And the most interesting reason is that if you are already wearing a Ruby and meanwhile the Eastern part of your house or workplace is not well arranged according to the principles of Vastu then your Ruby may not give proper results. East is the direction of Sun. If there is some sort of garbage, dust or impurity in this direction then your Ruby will not give proper results. If there is a toilet in the East direction then if will significantly weaken the attributes of Sun in your life and persona.Presence of Black or blue colour in this direction is also not good.

On the one side you are trying to strengthen your Sun by wearing a Ruby and on the other side you are weakening your sun by keeping the East direction unclean. Therefore it will give partial results or no results at all.

If this is your case then keep the East direction clean and light. And if it is not possible due to some architectural reasons, say there is a toilet in this direction, then you will have to first strengthen the attributes of Sun in the East direction of your building. This you can do by decorating this direction with red colour objects, placing a red bulb or placing a Sun Plate on the Eastern wall of your building. After applying few such remedies, your Ruby will start giving its results.

I hope you will find this information useful for you or your dear ones. In case you have any doubts then you are most welcome to put the same in the comment box. I will try and answer your doubts to the best of my knowledge and experience into the subject.

      Hi Erorantes

      Yes It is fine with you. Sun being in your fourth house in Cancer sign, Ruby will be helpful to ease out your issues related to your mother, conveniences, vehicles, house and your own motherly responsibilities etc. Physically it is good for heart and bones. The gem for the Sun is best set in gold, though copper can be used as an alternate. If a ring, it should be worn on the ring finger. Begin to wear it on a Sunday at sunrise.

      For an authentic gem I always recommend to purchase from some local vendor who is well known for authenticity and who issues a Certificate of Authenticity with the gem. Else you can purchase it online also from some leading brand who give you a money back guarantee for authenticity related issues. The leading brands are very careful about quality as they have to maintain their reputation and goodwill in the market.

      Hi Erorantes,

      Please give me following details:

      1. Date of birth

      2. Time of birth

      3. City of birth

      and I will suggest you if it suits you or not. If the stone is authentic and certified and the shade is between purple red to orange red, it is okay. The pictures which I have added to this hub show authentic Rubies.
