September’s birthstone is the lovely Sapphire. The sapphire is a relative of July’s birthstone, ruby. Like ruby, sapphire stones are formed of the mineral corundum. The sapphire becomes blue because of the presence of small amounts of titanium and iron within the crystal structure and depending on the amount of each, the sapphire can range from a very pale blue to a deep indigo hue.
The sapphire is said to represent purity and positive energies. Medieval kings of Europe wore the stone on rings and brooches as the belief was that they protected from harm and envy of the enemy.
