The birthstone for September is blue sapphire.
Though sapphires get their name from the Latin sapphirus meaning “blue”, sapphires come in a rainbow of shades (with the notable exception of red sapphires which are classed as rubies).
In the Middle Ages, sapphires were prized for their blue colour, which symbolized the heavens or the divine. Buddhists also bestowed spiritual meaning on sapphires, believing that they brought enlightenment.
Sapphire calms and focuses the mind, allowing instinct to take the lead.
Releasing tensions and unwanted thoughts leaves more room for lightness and joy – restoring balance within the body.
Sapphire’s radiant energy heightens spiritual power, enhancing self-discipline and intuition, augmenting subconscious action towards goals and desires.
