      Yes, according to various sources you should wear a ruby on your left finger for the best effect. However, wearing a ruby on your right finger will not cause a high fever. You should always consult a health care professional when dealing with health related problems.

    hi..i am 22, unmarried..i was interested in buying a ruby and blue i bought both of the stones and wore the ring (which includes both of the stones) on my right hand..But after reading your article, i have wore the ring on my left hand. I have searched the net and some of the websites says that ruby shouldn’t be worn with blue sapphire. I wanted to ask you that i am wearing both of the stones, is it dangerous?

      Yes blue sapphire is the planet of Saturn and ruby is of sun. As Saturn is the enemy of sun, so for more information kindly consult to astrologer.

    At first I had absolutely incredible results from gemstone healing, which if I elaborated you probably wouldn’t believe, but within months all gemstone work began to drain my energy to where I could barely function. For some reason I began wearing them only on my right side, and find they are working again without the debilitation! There must be a connection, but what is it? I need to understand this.

    im wearing a ruby necklace including with its eye agate stones which other friends of mine was rare to find. is it ok to wear this necklace everyday? Becoz i only once a weak use the ruby necklace becoz its so powerful. My energy level is high and it gives courage to onceself. Just avoid petty quarrel when you use the ruby becoz ruby stone makes you hot tempered on energy level. Be sure you know how to balance the stone you had. Im wearing amethyst bracelet in the left arm and wearing the jade bracelet on the right arm and wearing the ruby necklace with an eye agate. I feel the balance energy within me. Hoping everybody can get a suitable stone for each one of us. God Bless All.
