A ruby is a pink to blood-red colored gemstone with the same chemical makeup of sapphire, but the red color is due to the element chromium. In the King James Bible, rubies are referred to as Sardius. In the Old Testament, this stone references the first stone on the breastplate of the high priest. It comes from the Hebrew word “odem” meaning “precious stone” and “adom” which means “to be or look red.”
Positive: Biblically, inscribed upon the Sardius stone, or ruby, was the name “Judah” which represents praise of Jehovah. This stone also represents integrity and the blood of Jesus. Rubies in a dream can represent the sacrifice of Jesus’ blood for our sins. Dreaming of a ruby could represent a high value placed on something and a spiritual gift or blessing. Dreaming of a friend or a minister giving you rubies could represent revelation or spiritual impartation. In a dream, giving away rubies could represent giving honor where it is due.
Negative: In a dream, a ruby could represent corruption of power or greed. Dreaming of stealing rubies could represent a lack of integrity. Stolen rubies could also indicate that the enemy is trying to steal your blessings or faith.
