July is the month of the zodiac signs Cancer & Leo. Famouns July alumni include Liv Tyler, Tom Cruise, Sylvester Stallone, Tom Hanks, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Jennifer Lopez. Quite a formidable bunch!
The stone associated with July is the Ruby. Rubies are said to arouse the senses, stir the imagination, and to guarantee health, wisdom, wealth, and success in love. Who wouldn't want some of those! It was once believed that wearing a fine red ruby brought good fortune upon its owner. Well, it's worth a shot, eh?
Little jewellery factoid for you - rubies and sapphires are actually from the same gemstone family, Corundum, the only difference being their colour, so the green Sapphire is Emerald and the red sapphire is Ruby. That's one for the pub quiz!
