History & Lore ~ Ruby

New Ruby History & Lore
The ancient writers described ruby as having the power of shining in the absence of all light, the fact being the ruby becomes phosphorescent by being exposed to the sun.  Ruby is spoken of in the book of Job, in the Proverbs and the Bible.  The breast plate of the high priest is said to have had rubies set in it.  It is a crystal steeped deeply in history, since rubies have adorned many houses of royalty with its rich, passionate, fiery brilliance.  It was also a crystal mentioned by the Prophet Isaiah in his book of prophecy.
