What Makes Sapphire Special
They are among the strongest natural gemstones on our planet, coming second to diamonds. The only natural stone which can scratch a sapphire is actually a diamond.
Sapphires are often associated with royalty and high dignity. They symbolize natural virtue, integrity, wisdom, and sincerity. This gemstone is said to radiate lightness and joy while stimulating the wearer's concentration on their chosen path.
Sapphire, or as it is also known, the "stone of prosperity", is said to also fulfill dreams and desires while attracting many gifts from the universe.
Though sapphire comes in a rainbow of beautiful hues, when most people think of it, they picture a gorgeous blue gemstone. Unsurprisingly, its name comes from its most popular color, the Latin word “sapphiru” which means blue.
Non-blue sapphires are considered fancy sapphires and can be pink, orange, yellow, green, and purple. They can be any color except red, which is considered a ruby.
Blue Sapphire comes in various shades, but the most valuable is the most saturated velvety or violet-blue stones. There is an old myth, that the Earth balances on top of a ginormous Blue Sapphire and this is how the sky gets its blue color… through the sapphire's reflection.
Blue Sapphire is a stone of self-awareness and wise judgment and because of this, is said to inspire compassion. Wear blue sapphire as a reminder that wisdom, truth, kindness, communication, and knowledge is within you.
The romantic, rare and elegant pink sapphire can range in color from light red to light purple. Sapphires in this color range represent both power and kindness. They have long been a symbol of love and are said to inspire it on all levels, ...physical, spiritual, and universal.
Wear pink sapphire for confidence, beauty, wisdom, and purity. This stone is said also to immensely help those who are on a journey to find their significant other.
Thanks to their beautiful color and femininity, they make a wonderful September birthday gift for a Virgo or anyone else who loves gorgeous, durable, bright pink gemstones or appreciates the universal gifts that sapphire has to offer.
