Get ready September babies, this month is all about the sapphire! While the sapphire comes in a variety of shades, the classic rich blue shade is the most recognized color. This stone bears many unique properties that will surprise you. Let’s explore this iconic gem!
Known as The Wisdom Stone and The Stone Of Prosperity, the sapphire has been coveted by the powerful, rich, and famous for centuries. In fact, the stone has been one of the most prized gemstones since 800 BC! In ancient times, royalty wore blue sapphires because they believed the stone could protect owners from the evil intentions of their enemies.
Interesting fact: did you know the name sapphire derives from the Latin word “saphirus” and the Greek word “sapheiros” – both meaning blue? According to others, the sapphire name stems from its association with the planet Saturn.
The durable sapphire belongs in the corundum mineral family, which also happens to be the same family as rubies. The sapphire gem contains trace elements like magnesium, chromium, titanium, copper, and iron. These elements give the naturally colorless corundum its hints of orange, green, yellow, purple, or blue.
Our friends of the September birthstone are known to be intelligent by nature and can remain cool, calm, and collected during chaotic situations. While you don’t easily open up to people, you are no push over! It may be time for you to trust others, but you are loyal once that trust is earned.
The healing properties of a sapphire are sure to bring the good vibes! The stone helps maintain inner peace, calms your nerves, and promotes mental clarity. Your positive attitude towards life will promote self-motivation and will help you advance on a path of self-fulfillment. Yes, yes, and yes! We are all about that good juju.
Creative expression, wisdom, generosity, balance, intellect, optimism, among many other fabulous things are what the sapphire will bring you. Keep all that goodness rolling!
There’s truly no shortage when it comes to metaphysical properties of the sapphire. The gem helps you with self-expression, speaking your truth, and communicating. Traditionally associated with purity and love, sapphires foster commitment, fidelity, and loyalty.
The sapphire is connected to the throat and third eye chakra. Wearing the sapphire will allow you to access a deeper level of consciousness so that you can get a greater understanding of yourself or whatever challenges you want to resolve.
If you use this gem during meditation, it may guide you towards your hidden potential and sharpen the vision of you life’s work. You will be able to concentrate and clear a mental path so that your journey may begin.
