THE KING OF GEMS
The ancient Hindus dubbed Rubies “the lord of gems” and many civilizations treasure the rare stone as a protective talisman. It’s appropriate that the king of stones also corresponds to the first sign of the Zodiac: Aries. The Aries has a warrior’s spirit, with leadership qualities that induce aggressive, impulsive, and courageous behavior. The symbol of the Ram captures the personality of this sign, as its horns are always ready for battle. Mostly, Aries are known for their intelligence and savvy, and need to keep themselves busy in order not to get bored. Their need to dominate can often get in the way of their ambition to succeed, but luckily Rubies help Aries align their thoughts rationally.
