"They say through patience, chalk becomes a ruby stone; ...... " Translations: Ralph Waldo Emerson
At a Gem Show, in a room full of beautiful stones, these gem quality Ruby and Zoisite crystal tumbles drew me so completely and so intensely. The green of the Zoisite is fresh and bright and the Ruby is deep and the color of blood. The two beautifully contrasting colors enhance each others beauty. They come from Nigeria and are hand polished.

Ruby has been singing so powerfully of late and the message of her song was surprising. Ruby says that the paradigm of worth/value in our universe is about to shift. Before it does, the Universe requires us to experience the full spectrum of the effects of our monetary (value) system. Many of us at this time are experiencing fear around money, be it feelings of lack or fear of losing what we have. And it doesn’t matter what our financial status or social position may be, the experience of debt and feelings of lack or fear can visit any of us, no matter the outer appearance. I asked for a crystal to step forward to offer support in this time of transition and Ruby began to sing. How perfect. A stone of the Royals has come forth to teach us about worth. She has stepped forward to offer us her support as we shift into a new perspective of value. Ruby's medicine is in great need in our time and she offers it freely and openly.
