Handcrafted necklace with raw Ruby Garnet and pure silver nuggets.
Minimalist necklace, for men and women, handmade and composed of rough red ruby stones and garnet stones; pure and solid silver nuggets embellish and lighten them.
The stones that compose the necklace are natural, and have not undergone any chemical treatments or artificial colouring.
This minimalist, thin and elegant necklace is made with natural rough Ruby and Garnet stones, in the shape of a faceted cube that brings out the intensity of the colour of the stones, giving the necklace an unusual sparkle.
The term ‘rough’ ruby refers to the part of the gemstone that is less lustrous and transparent, less pure, with more inclusions (substances of various kinds embedded within the stone), also referred to as the ‘root’.

Morphology of the Ruby
The Ruby is a red Corindone, an aluminum oxide mineral with chromium inclusions.
The name of this stone comes from the Latin word “ruber”, that means “red”.
Ruby is a coloured variety of Corundum, a crystal formed by the aluminum oxide.
Its characteristic colouring in the red tone is due to chromium, which is present in some corundums, while in the brown shades of some rubies it is due to the presence of iron.
The origin of the ruby is conventionally assigned to Burma, in its Mogok Valley, even today the ruby is mined in the north of this country, nicknamed “The Ladies’ Ruby”.
Other mining places are Afghanistan, Cambodia, China, India, Madagascar, Kenya, Mozambique, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Thailand and Vietnam.
Curiosity and property of the Ruby
The ruby is the July stone.
The name of this stone comes from the Latin word “ruber”, that means “red”, and since ever represents passion, love and romanticism.
It’s considered symbol of nobility and giver of virtue, this stone is symbol of enthusiasm, joy of life, cheerfulness and freedom, in addition to be the emblem of love and ardour, force, passion and action.
The Ruby has been every time star of mytos and legends: i.e during the Medioevo people thought that it had divine power and it became dark just before negative events.
Instead, in the ‘800, it was a symbol of nobility and giver of virtue, but also magical amulet against illnesses, nightmares and sofferences.
It’s the vitality stone and, for certain oriental philosophy, it stimulate the first chakra and increases the vital energy (although it couldn’t been different for a stone that in ancient time was attributed to the sun).
Symbol of enthusiasm, joy of life, pleasure and freedom, the ruby is the emblem of love and ardour, force and health in the phisic world, passion and action in the stars world, happiness, faith, sympathy, tranquillity.
