Unakite, Peach Moonstone, and Bloodstone are some of the best crystal combinations for Ruby. Unakite offers a more grounded energy, specifically the energy of spring. It shows the light at the end of the dark tunnel. Ruby and Peach Moonstone can help you express yourself creatively and accept the more cyclical nature of sadness and even your own energy.
Finally, both Ruby and Bloodstone can help the spiritual flow of the blood by increasing the love and ancestral healing that keep the blood pumping.
Ruby acts simultaneously on both the Heart and the Root Chakra. It activates your energy and vitality by activating your heart.
JaneAnn Dow calls it a second heart, and it’s often sought out as a stone for hope that also gives you the drive and motivation you need to complete a project, no matter how hopeless it may be.
Because of its hardness, it acts directly on the spiritual plane, identifying any obstacles to the spiritual heart.
Including any reasons why the blood may not be flowing harmoniously. It is deeply energizing.

As a pairing, it will stimulate your lateral thinking to think about original solutions to the problems that plague you.
3. Unakite and Ruby Combination
Unakite fosters forgiveness and helps you let go of anger and resentment.
It also acts as a unifying principle, especially for the Yin and Yang polarities, but this energy can be applied to any duality.
Unakite also has ties with the element of Earth and especially with the energy of spring.
If you look at it, it looks like a lush green field with pink flowers scattered all over it.
Spring represents the awakening of life and the end of the dark winter.
Unakite can be said to represent hope itself, then, or at least the outcome Ruby gives you the strength to strive towards.
It gives you a taste of the happiness that awaits after the grueling job of not giving up when all seems lost.
Ruby is also a Yang crystal.
Unakite helps to integrate the Yin principle as well, so you don’t lose sight of your intuition while you continue to be strong.

Ruby is highly energizing as well. Combining it with Blue Lace Agate ensures you don’t go overboard and overexert yourself.
5. Lepidolite and Ruby Combination
Lepidolite can give you a much needed break for the Heart and the mind.
It’s not about numbing the pain but about giving you a moment of calm so you can process what is happening to you.
It can calm down even the most overactive mind and give the most broken of hearts a break.
Putting up a fight in a situation where all seems lost can be discouraging.
Combining Ruby with Lepidolite will give you the drive but also the opportunity to take breaks when you need to.
This will ensure you don’t end up rundown and exhausted.
In addition to this, sometimes after rest, you gain a new perspective on the situation.
6. Nicolo Onyx and Ruby Combination
Nicolo Onyx has a white hue that embodies the duality of Black Onyx.
This crystal is not just about accepting grief and pain as a part of life, it is also about seeing the light and the clarity that can come out from embracing said pain.
There is no light without contrasting darkness, after all.
When paired with Ruby, it offers grounding for the spiritual energy of the former crystal.
And helps you materialize all the insight you gain from interacting with Ruby.
Nicolo Onyx also offers protection in your Herculean labor.
7. Emerald and Ruby Combination
Emerald teaches you to mother yourself, something we all must do at some point in our spiritual evolution.
This is the case even if we have an excellent relationship with our mothers or mother figures.
It is nurturing and supportive, especially during processes of transition and change.
It offers a nice, comforting energy while Ruby gives you the drive and motivation to keep going.
That’s without saying that they make a gorgeous pairing in a piece of jewelry.

In the worst of times, it can show you the hint of hope and loving support you need.
8. Morganite and Ruby Combination
Morganite teaches all about Divine Love. Divine Love gives without expecting anything in return.
Not from a place of self-sacrifice, but because the pleasure is in the giving itself.
It also teaches you to be in awe of the beauty of creation.
It teaches you to see yourself as a reflection of the Divine, and others too, even in their imperfection.
This can be the compassionate approach that’s needed to complete the work of Ruby.
When all hope seems lost, keep going, this pairing seems to say. Not because of anyone else’s sake, but because of yours.
Or because it is the best for somebody else, no matter how much it may hurt at the time.
9. Tiger’s Eye and Ruby Combination
Tiger’s Eye acts directly on the naval chakra and connects you to the life force available to you through your birth mother.
Your birth mother, in turn, acts as a gateway for your maternal lineage.
This crystal also acts on the Solar Plexus Chakra, energizing and empowering you and letting you go of fear.
When paired with Ruby, the result is strength, focus, and drive. The awakening of your true warrior spirit is inevitable with this pairing.
10. Jade and Ruby Combination
Jade can heal the heart if you pay attention to your dreams.
It points the way to the Divine insight you need in order to start living from the Heart. It also has ties to wealth.
If your sense of despair and loss of hope have at all to do with your financial situation or if you feel like you are drowning in debt, this pairing is for you.
Ruby will show you through Jade how to get out of a sticky financial situation.
11. Pink Opal and Ruby Combination
If you tend to repress your emotions a lot, this is the pairing for you.
Pink Opal will make your emotions liquid and soften your heart while Ruby energizes you and gives you the energy you need to put up a fight.
Sometimes, we end up in seemingly hopeless situations because we haven’t felt what we were supposed to feel and we end up imploding.
In cases like these, it is a smart idea to pair Ruby with Pink Opal to gain a better understanding of our emotions.
12. Peach Moonstone and Ruby Combination
Peach Moonstone complements Ruby by having a much gentler energy.
Whereas Ruby may encourage you to act in a linear way, following a step-by-step process.
Peach Moonstone encourages you to respect your natural cycles and your flow of energy.
Peach Moonstone also activates your creativity and can help you channel messages from your intuition through artistic expression.
When paired with Ruby, it will encourage you to make art about all the circumstances that have led you to lose hope.
Perhaps your art will even show you the way out and encourage you to look at your situation from a different perspective.
In some cases, the art you create using this pairing can even inspire others to remain hopeful.
13. Bloodstone and Ruby Combination
Both Ruby and Bloodstone have to do with the blood and its circulation through the body.
If you’re currently suffering from physical symptoms, please contact the doctor.
However, if the circulation of blood is more metaphorical, this pairing can help you.
Love has a lot to do with the way the blood circulates in the body and your levels of physical energy and vitality.
Blood also has to do with your blood ancestors. Working with this pairing can keep the blood, love, and ancestral healing flowing.
Bloodstone has a more grounded energy than Ruby and can help you make sense of the more elevated messages Ruby has to offer.
How to use crystal combinations for Ruby
Have a bracelet made
Bracelets, especially placed on the left wrist, connect with an energy point in the body that carries the energy of your chosen crystal directly to the bloodstream.
As Ruby is quite a potent crystal, we recommend Lunar silver over amplifying Gold, though Rose Gold can offer a grounded energy that can amplify loving support.
Keep the bracelet clean by using sound cleansing or burying it in raw rice overnight.
Make sure to dispose of this rice later. Charge it by moonlight or bury it when the gems start to look dull.
When you’re not using it, store it in a dry, cool place, preferably wrapped in silk.
Read poetry about hope aloud while interacting with Ruby
Interacting with poems such as Emily Dickinson’s 245 poems (“Hope is the thing with feathers…”).
Rudyard Kipling’s “If,” Maya Angelou’s “Rise Up” or even Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous speech in which he stated he had a dream while interacting with a Ruby pairing can give you far more insight into words you may know very well (or almost not at all).
Poets often channel what they write, so their words often contain sacred wisdom that’s never quite exhausted.
Ruby’s gift of hope and fortitude can be made more complete by pairing it with crystals that encourage you to experience hope creatively, add ancestral force, or add grounding.
Some others, like Diamond, act as amplifiers. The bottom line is that these pairings can get you through some tough times.
