We all adore the shiny pieces of Gems, especially Ruby, don’t we? But do you know that they are magical and bring benefits to a person who wears them? Ruby or Manik is popularly known as the ‘King of Gemstones’. This bright and shiny red gemstone has been given so much importance because of its association with the Sun. Ruby brings in liveliness in a person, gives them good health and reduces the malefic effects of the Sun. That is why it is said that wearing Ruby rectifies the adverse effects caused by the wrong placement of Sun. Manik affects the subtle energy of a person. Karma decides the fate of an individual and thus defines their course of life. However, if a person wears a Manik, they are blessed with authority, enlightenment and courage. Astrologers also recommend Ruby in cases where your natal chart has Pitar Dosh. It is essential to remove Pitar Dosh from the natal chart as it results in financial losses and destabilises a person’s profession. Ruby is also good for people who seek fame and popularity.
