Rubies sometimes display a higher reflectiveness or "chatoyance" due to Rutile (Titanium Dioxide) inclusions within the gemstone. In higher-grade pieces, the Rutile aligns to reflect light in a perfect star like pattern known as Asterism.
The reflectiveness (or star) within a stone was believed to be the Spirit of the stone, or a spirit caught within the stone. In ancient times, it was believed this Spirit would protect, bring good fortune, or bestow wishes upon the bearer of the gem if they were pure in heart and intention.
