The Gemstone of Nobility
Sapphires are one of mother nature’s rarest gemstones. For centuries the rich and noble have sought them out. Long associated with nobility, faithfulness, the celestial, and enlightenment makes them even more sought after. This is why you will find many royalty and clergy who have worn sapphires throughout history. For example, Princess Diana wore a famous Sapphire and Diamond ring. Today Prince William’s wife, Kate is the proud owner.
Healing and Protection
Many people seek out gems for their attributes. Greeks and Romans believed anyone wearing a sapphire would be protected from harm. That is why people seeking healing and protection like to wear Sapphires even today. They also have an attribute of wisdom and serenity.
Where to Find Them
Sapphire comes from the Greek word sappheiros meaning blue and while they do come in other colors, deep blue is the most popular. They are found throughout the world. However, mining began in the 19th century in the Kashmir region in India, when a landslide occurred in the Himalayas exposing an abundance of sapphires. Australia was also a significant source of deposits until more recently when mining began in Madagascar. Today, Madagascar leads other countries in sapphire production. September babies are lucky to have sapphire as their birthstone. The 5th and 45th wedding anniversaries also have the beautiful gemstone as their given gift.
