Meaning of Sapphire Gemstone

Meaning of Sapphire Gemstone

Sapphire, the September birthstone and is celebrated as the Gemstone for the 5th, 23rd, and 45th Wedding Anniversary.

Sapphire has been popular since the Middle Ages and, according to folklore, will protect your loved ones from envy and harm.

Medieval clergy wore Sapphires to symbolize Heaven, while commoners thought the gem attracted heavenly blessings.

The ancients regarded Sapphires as powerful talismans that could protect travelers and seekers against evil spirits and other unsavory creatures of the night.

These talismans were considered to be so powerful, that they would continue protecting the wearer even after they had been passed on to another person.

Abbes Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) chronicled the healing powers of gemstones in her book, Physica. According to her view, gemstones are formed through the powerful combination of water and fire; therefore they hold powers corresponding to these natural phenomena.

She also believed that each stone had a certain, divine blessing from God.

She said the following about Sapphire:

“Who is dull and would like to be clever, should, in a sober state, frequently lick with the tongue on a Sapphire, because the gemstone’s warmth and power, combined with the saliva’s moisture, will expel the harmful juices that affect the intellect. Thus, the man will attain a good intellect.”

Blue sapphires range from very light to very dark greenish or Violette/ blue, as well as various shades of pure blue.

While blue is the most traditional and classic color for sapphire, sapphire is actually found in a variety of different colors.
