The ruby is second only to the diamond in strength. That is why the ruby is a gem for protection and passion. It is the base stone for the chakra and can penetrate any darkness. All natural rubies have flaws in them, but if that is the character of a natural ruby then it isn't a flaw and merely a property. This yarn is much like it's namesake. Kettle dyed so that it is rich in color, yet with variations that will make your projects shine with beauty.
