Stone of the Week: Ruby

Happy July!  Let’s kick this off with the July birthstone.  Ruby is a stone for vitality and enthusiasm.  I’m not sure how much more enthusiasm I can handle in this summer heat, but maybe it’ll perk my bedraggled bag of bones up again.  This is the season for adventure after all.

Stone of the Week: Kyanite
