Obviously, these effects hold true if one wears or possesses genuine ruby stones. In terms of identification, the first clue to the gorgeous red stone being genuine is obviously its color. The stone may range in color from red to purplish or brownish red and deep pinkish-red.

The truth is, finding a genuine, deep red ruby is very difficult. Their presence is rare and of course these types of the stone are also high on the price.
One thing to remember when buying gemstones is not getting carried away just because a certain gemstone offers such and such benefits. The crucial bit is to focus on buying a genuine product, whether it is ruby or panna stone or a semi-precious gemstone.
