For anyone born in July, your birthstone is ruby. Lucky you!

Higher quality rubes are very rare – the most valuable rubies are those that with vivid, darkish red or slightly purplish red colours. Despite their rarity, rubies are still great for everyday wear as they are the second-hardest gem (behind diamonds).
