Bright, blood red and the birthstone of July, I love rubies simply because of their colour - red! I have one pretty red heart ruby ring, which I don't wear because I haven't ever bothered to get it resized.
Rubies are corundum. The largest ruby is the Burmese Ruby housed inside the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History, which means I've seen it! Except, apparently, I don't have a picture.
Roxanne was the Ruby Princess in the Jewel Kingdom series. She was the second oldest at nine, had black hair, wore red, lived in the Red Mountains, and had a pet dragon called Hapgood!
