September, the birthstone is Sapphire!

Sapphire September BirthstoneSapphire: Sapphire has been popular since the Middle Ages. According to folklore, sapphires will protect your loved ones from envy and harm.  Medieval clergy wore sapphires to symbolize heaven and people thought the gem attracted heavenly blessings.  Sapphires occur in a wide range of colors; from very light to very dark greenish or violet-blue, and various shades of blue.  It is a variety of corundum, which occurs in all colors.  Pink, purple, green, orange, or yellow corundum are known by their color (pink sapphire, etc.).  Sapphire is the anniversary gemstone for the 5th and 45th years of marriage.
