RUBÍ, RUBY, A PRECIOUS STONE


rubrum (red), Eng ruby, a precious stone valued much more than a diamond during the Middle Ages when exported from India. By wearing it on the ring or baby finger of the right hand during meals, it annuled poison in foods and other misfortunes while eating. It’s powers were thought to provide happiness, health, success, protection and cured one’s ills among other things. See manos, comer con. [Alonso Luengo. 1994:44; “Gemstone” Apr 3, 03; and Villena/Calero. 2002:16:11a]
