Sapphire

The September #birthstone is Sapphire — a gem that’s been cherished for thousands of years.

Although the term sapphire usually refers to the blue variety of corundum, this birthstone comes in a rainbow of other colors. Pink, purple, green, orange, or yellow corundum are known by their color (pink sapphire, green sapphire). Ruby is the red variety of corundum.

Blue sapphires range from very light to very dark greenish or violetish blue, as well as various shades of pure blue. The most prized colors are a medium to medium dark blue or slightly violetish blue.

Sapphires have been long associated with royalty and romance and are also said to symbolize fidelity and the soul.
