#sapphire, #September's #Birthstone

Sapphire is the birthstone for September.  The word sapphire comes from the Latin saphirus and Greek sapherius meaning "blue".  It is one of the oldest gemstones, seen as a valuable stone since 800BC.  Sapphire is the stone of calm, wisdom, prophecy and royalty.  Sapphire is purported to bring protection to the wearer, good fortune, spiritual insight and blue sapphire is the stone of love and commitment.

The only difference between a ruby and a sapphire is the colour.  It is almost as hard as a diamond (9 v 10) so is very easy to clean and take care of without fear of chipping!
