This stone is also unique for the fact that In certain lighting the stone shows a clear semi translucent-Deep-red color.
In other lighting conditions however, the stone shows its inside, hexagonal crystal shape combined with a six ray star asterism.
And Yet still in other lighting conditions the stone shows only the lines of a six-ray star.
Truly an inspiring piece that shows just how complex mother nature can be.
Star Rubies are beautiful gemstones that display a six-ray star that seems to glide magically across the surface of the gem when the latter is moved.
This six-ray star is caused due to an optical phenomena known as "Asterism". The term "Asterism" is derived from the Greek word "aster", which means star, so asterism is commonly referred to as "star" or "star-effect". In simple words, asterism is a star-shaped light effect across the surface of gems. The asterism on a Star Ruby should only appear when exposed to good lighting conditions.
The Star Ruby has the same metaphysical properties as Ruby, but with increased healing and magical energies. It is most powerful at full moon.
The Light of the Soul is reflected and grounded within the star of the Ruby, and amplifies one’s internal resources and fortitude. It is extremely potent for those inclined to self-harm or self-neglect.
As a stone of spiritual Light, it can be used by Light workers and healers to integrate high-frequency energy into the body, and assists one in recognizing the true abundance of life.
The ruby is considered to be the most powerful gem in the universe, and is associated with many astral signs. To own a ruby is said to have contentment and peace.
Placed under a pillow the ruby may ward off bad dreams. Given as a gift, the ruby is a symbol of friendship and love. The ruby is also the symbol of vitality and royalty.
The Ruby is filled with love. It also helps sexual love to be more passionate. Persons lacking in self-love should have and mediate on the Ruby. It also gives the courage to be the best that a person can be.
