THE BIRTHSTONE OF SEPTEMBER AND ITS MISCONCEPTIONS

September is the month of the Sapphire. In the presence of such a great stone, a meta-analysis is not enough to cover the vast name “Sapphire”. Previously we introduced Sapphires based on their Origin: Madagascar and Ceylon(Sri Lanka). Therefore, at this stage, people require a micro-analysis for a deeper understanding of what we know as the Sapphire. Available in a wide range of colours; the Blue Sapphire is the most common type of Sapphire which the general populace knows. So much so, a widespread misconception is that: “Blue is the Only Color which Sapphires come in.”. Therefore, to inform and correct this general misconception, one must dwell more in-depth into the topic.

MEANING AND LORE

The meaning of the word Sapphire is the first confounding factor leading to the misconception above. The name sapphire derives from Latin “Saphirus” and Greek: “Sapheiros.” both of these words mean blue. Hence the mistake can substantiate itself and its origins. The exact discovery of Sapphires is unknown; however, around 800 BC A common belief by the ancient Persians was: the sky is blue because of the reflection of sapphires. Additionally, the stone was and still is also holy as considered by the Catholic Church. The colour of the heavens represents the heavens, was a common mantra in by some religions. There are countless examples of the association of the blue sapphire with otherworldly and religious entities.
