Sapphire is a variety of the mineral corundum, a type of aluminum oxide. Impurities of different elements give sapphire its color.

It may be blue, pink, yellow, green, orange, brown and black or gray. When this mineral is colored red, it is a ruby. There is an orangish pink variety called padparadscha.


The word sapphire comes from the Greek σάπφειρος; sappheiros, meaning ‘blue stone’.

History and Folklore

During Medieval times, sapphire was considered an appropriate gift for a lover. If the lover were unfaithful, the stone would turn pale.

Sapphire is the birthstone for September.
