Symbolism and meaning of the sapphire birthstone
The oldest mythological “property” of the sapphire is said to be the connection between earth and heaven. The ancient scriptures of any religion and ancient scholars describe a connection between the divine and the earthly through the sapphire. It is one of the most important gemstones on earth and is also explicitly associated with the divine nature of the Lord in the Bible. What makes this birthstone so special anyway? The sky shows up in yearning blue. This is the primary color of both sapphire and aquamarine. The September birthstone is actually also known as the “sky stone.” There are many myths surrounding this term – from the ancient Persians to the Greeks to the Christians.
To the ancient Greeks and Romans, wearing sapphires was supposed to protect against infidelity, envy, and harm. In Christianity, sapphires were often placed at the feet of the Lord to establish a divine connection through the gemstones. Heads of the church today in particular still wear rings with sapphires to symbolize their direct connection with heaven. Admittedly, the faithful are not all born in the month of September and thus have no right to the sapphire as their own birthstone.
Like the divine, however, beauty, hope, and the desire for harmony and honesty are there for every person who is open to them and who longs for them. And so many people built a love for the sapphire, who with the help of the gemstone uncovered a betrayal, found their way back to harmony or were able to leave other unpleasant social situations behind. Summer, which slowly takes its leave in September, makes room for autumn. The September gemstone, with its beautiful blue colour and protective properties, is just the thing to symbolise good fortune.
September: Sapphire as birthstone for the zodiac signs Virgo and Libra
Since the name sapphire is most likely derived from a mixture of ancient Greek and Sanskrit words meaning “dark-colored stone”, other gemstones used to be considered “sapphires” such as lapis lazuli, azurite, and deep blue corundum. The latter is indeed the sapphire we know today in its most common color. However, there is a wide spectrum of colors among sapphires. There are pink sapphires, yellow sapphires, green sapphires, gray sapphires, etc. The only thing that doesn’t exist is blood red sapphires – because the color red is reserved for rubies, which are from the same family as sapphires. Sapphire and ruby are siblings, so to speak.
The white or colorless sapphires are also known because they are used as a cheap alternative to diamonds, especially to support not quite as valuable colored gemstones. However, they do not come close to the brilliance and clarity of perfectly cut diamonds in jewelry! White sapphires relate to diamonds much as a peridot does to an emerald. Without question beautiful in their own right – but just out of a different league. Gemstones tell their own stories and have fans everywhere. Whether the birthstone September for Virgo is the true favorite stone of those born between September 01 and September 23, as well as of early Libra (September 24 to September 30), is of course a matter of taste. Falling for the color blue, meanwhile, is easy. No blue is as beautiful as the rich blue of sapphire!
