September Birthstone - Sapphire

Birthstones - September

Sapphire is also the gem for the 45th anniversary. A variety of corundum, it comes in all colours except red (the red variety being known as ruby), but is especially popular in deep blue. Fancy coloured sapphires - including pink, green, orange and golden yellow - are much sought-after. Ancient priests and sorcerers honoured sapphire above all gems, for this stone enabled them to interpret oracles and foretell the future. Marriage partners put great faith in the stone. If its lustre dimmed, one knew his or her spouse had been unfaithful. Sapphire refused to shine when worn by the wicked or impure.
