Ruby is one of its kind and a very precious & valuable gemstone; it has made a loyal status from ancient times. It is the kind of Corundum, and it gets its gorgeous red color from Chromium. In India, we popularly call Ruby as Manik stone, and in Sanskrit, it is known as ‘ratnaraj’ which means ‘king of all gemstones’.
It is one of the gorgeous gemstones on earth. The color of Ruby gemstone varies from dark red to light pink; some transparent rubies are even more valuable than diamonds.
Significance of Ruby Gemstone
According to our Hindu Astrology, Ruby is advised to wear as per the natal outline of the wearer. And as per the Vedic Astrology, Ruby is associated with planet Sun. We all know that the Sun is the strongest planet in the solar system. It rules our physical health and energy and defines our self of self-esteem and self-projection in the world.
I gave a Ruby ring to one of my closest friends who was suggested to wear one, and after some time when we met, he told me how energetic he felt and how he grabbed all the center of attention. Thus I realized that if the planet Sun gives reliable results in someone’s horoscope, he or she must wear ruby for astrological benefits to raise the power of the planet Sun in their horoscope.

The correct way to wear ruby
I have known many astrologers for quite a long time, and they always used to tell me that all the stones are excellent and helpful, but you need to follow a particular process and manner to adorn it to bring good results. It is just the same as you need to take the medicines on the right and correct way to get specific health benefits. Thus, to comprehend the benefits of Ruby gemstone, you must assure the authenticity and character of the stone. Besides, it is necessary to purify the stone. I follow a specific way to purify and activate it before using, in which I dip the stone in a mixture of Gangajal, honey, sugar, milk, and curd a night before wearing.
The next morning, I offer prayers to Lord Sun and take his blessings along with the chant of Surya Mantra(Sun Mantra).
Om Suryaha Namaha
Thus I feel that the ideal time to wear Manik stone is in the morning. Additionally, the most suitable metal for the ring is gold and copper.
