Strong and Healing
Best-known for its deep blue hue, the sapphire is one of the most prized gems in the world. Nearly as a hard as a diamond—and in some cases just as precious—these stones are remarkably special when worn as jewelry or used for their many healing properties. If you’re lucky enough to have been born in the month of September, you get the added bonus of calling the sapphire your birthstone. Wear it with pride with the following facts in mind.
The word sapphire comes from ancient words for blue, “saphirus” (Latin) and “sapheiros” (Greek). However, there’s also a belief that sapphire is derived from the word Saturn, creating a bond with the ringed planet. In fact, “sapphire” can be translated to “dear to the planet Saturn” in multiple languages.
While most of us know of the blue sapphires, this gem actually comes in every color of the rainbow—and then some. Sapphires can be pink, yellow, orange, green, red, peach, gray and, of course, blue, depending on which minerals create them. (Blue sapphires are made with iron and titanium.) The rarest sapphire color is a light peach variety called padparadscha, which gets its name from the Sanskrit word for lotus flower.
Blue sapphires have been a protective stone for royalty through the ages, notably worn by medieval kings throughout history. In more recent times, Prince Charles bestowed a sapphire engagement ring to Lady Diana, a famous piece of jewelry that is now worn by his daughter-in-law, Kate Middleton.
The Stone of Wisdom
Sapphire got this nickname because it’s been long considered the stone of mental focus, insight, learning, and psychic ability. It’s said to heal the mind, bringing order and clarity to thoughts, as well as helping its bearer best use the knowledge it receives. Sapphires stimulate both the third eye and the throat chakra, a powerful combination that promotes clear thinking and communicating your thoughts effectively with others.
This gem has some significant spiritual connections, as it’s thought to bring joy, innocence, and chastity, all of which have been associated with god-like or religious-leaning qualities. Known as a “symbol of the heavens,” sapphires can increase communication and connection with higher powers, as well as inspire spiritual awareness and guidance. By connecting the wearer or bearer with their soul, sapphires increase cosmic connection and inner peace.
Sapphires protect against lies, especially the ones we tell ourselves. If you’ve been putting on airs or pretending certain aspects of your life (or yourself) are different than they really are, this stone is thought to reveal the truth. Even the most well-constructed façade can’t withstand this powerful gem.
