HISTORY:  

The name ruby comes from the Latin word ruber, which means “red.” The glowing red of ruby suggested an inextinguishable flame burning in the stone, even shining through clothing and able to boil water.

Ruby is one of the most historically significant colored stones. Rubies are mentioned four times in the Bible, in association with attributes like beauty and wisdom. And ruby has been called the most precious of the 12 stones created by God. In the ancient language of Sanskrit, ruby is called ratnaraj, or “king of precious stones.”
