July Birthstone is the RUBY. This gem can range from deep red to even a pinkish color and have been a very popular gemstone for over 2000 years! The ruby is one of four stones that are included in the “Precious Gems” category along with Sapphire, Emerald, and Diamond.
The rarest color of ruby is called pigeon’s blood which is a fiery shade of red, with a subtle hint of blue or purple. These rubies are more valuable than others because of their brilliance and transparency.
