*“Rubies are made up of the mineral corundum. Corundum is aluminum oxide ( Al2O3). A ruby forms when there is a small impurity of chromic oxide in the corundum (an aluminium oxide in which some of the aluminum ions have been substituted by chromium). This substitution process is called an isomorphous replacement.”
*Rubies are the Birthstone of July. (my birthstone)
*Rubies get there name from the Latin word for red “Ruber”.
*There are some rubies that have marks that branch out from the center called a star. For obvious reasons these varieties are called Star Rubies.
*There is a character on the TV show Steven Universe who is a Ruby.
*On a previous post I wrote about a character I created with my friends, who used an Amethyst “Powerstone” to gain superpowers, my sister also made a character for this game. Her character used a ruby.
Hello, my name is Charles & I’m here to review the Nintendo 3DS game Disney Magical World 2.
This game is the 2016 sequel to the 2014 3DS game Disney Magical World with even more Disney worlds and characters to encounter, assist and spend time with.
The game takes place in a magical town called Castleton where you not only manage a cafe near favorable Disney characters such as Mickey, but you also can travel to six Disney worlds.
The six disney worlds are comprised of Disney’s Frozen, The Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs and Winnie the Pooh.
Throughout this game, you discover ghostly beings of unknown origins are invading Castleton as well as all six Disney worlds and you must use special magic wands to use Disney magic to deal with them.
In each of the six Disney worlds you can attend Anna & Elsa’s Snowman Festival, have adventures as a mermaid/merman under the sea with Ariel, mine for gems with the Seven Dwarfs, surf and hula with Lilo & Stitch, help tackle trouble in Wonderland and have fun both farming and hanging out with Winnie the Pooh & friends.
In conclusion, I find this game truly Enchanting and am certain of it to be one of the embodiments of disney’s greatest magics.
On Saturday I volunteered at the Seeds For Autism Art Jam. I came early so I hung out with my friends and looked at the schedule. When the event started I went to the make and take area and showed visitors how to make the caterpillars out of pom poms, glue and clothespins. Eventually I had to head up front to pass the buckets to the people who had too much merchandise to hold. Soon the fashion show started. I really liked Camille, Sydney and Sonja. Camille was beautiful and had skills. Sydney was sweet and stylish and Sonja was confident. Then it was time for me and the guys to do some comedy. Jeff sang a funny song written by Gilbert and Sullivan. Jake read some funny stuff Ronald Reagan said once and I used my special gift of making jokes about anything. I ate some lunch with Camille, and then Amy needed help with some improv about going green. I had a good time spending time with my friends. I enjoyed helping the kids make caterpillars. I liked petting the guinea pigs. I got to meet my friends parents. I enjoyed doing my comedy act people liked my jokes. Then eventually I went home.
*”Early theories suggested Larimar was produced by the Sea, later by the earth’s volcanic movements. … The stone is formed when hot gases push crystallized minerals up though volcanic ‘tubes’. In order to mine and excavate the stone miners must identify these tubes and dig deeper and deeper into old volcanoes.”
*Larimar stones were named after the ocean and the daughter of the man( Miguel Mendez) who rediscovered it, Larissa and Mar which means sea in many languages.
*Larimar is a form of pectolite. But it is the only specific form of this crystalline.
*It was rediscovered in 1974. It was originally discovered in 1916. Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren asked permission to mine the blue stone he had found, but his request was denied and no one else knew of it until it’s rediscovery.
*Larimar stones are only found in the Caribbean sea in the Dominican republic on the island of Hispaniola.
“Amethyst is formed in silica-rich liquids deposited in gas cavities of lava that occur in crystalline masses. Such cavities occur in the earth’s crust for several reasons such as gas bubbling in circular cavities or filling of veins.”

The first character I ever created, which was part of a game I played with my friends as kids, was a member of a superhero team that used gemstones to transform and gain powers from. This character’s Powerstone was amethyst.
