Sapphire is a member of the Corundum family of minerals and gets is color form titanium and iron oxides. It is usually a light to medium blue, but comes in all colors except red. The blue in the Sapphire comes from traces of iron and titanium, while a yellow fancy Sapphire get its color from ferric iron and a green fancy Sapphire is found to have ferrous and ferric iron.

We can follow the use of Sapphires by the ancient Etruscans to the seventh century B.C.E. These gemstones were found to be fashionable in Greece, Rome and Egypt as well. During Medieval times kings favored Sapphires and by the time of the Renaissance, Sapphires were popular with the wealthy.

Due to the three crossing lines, the star Sapphire is know be called “the stone of destiny” symbolizing hope, destiny and faith. It is well connected to the Power of Three and the Triple Goddess. The star Sapphire is thought to bring those wearing it to realize their own spiritual, enlightened or occupational goals. Additionally Sapphires are believed to help with the ability to perceive, learn and grasp while promoting mental clarity.

Sapphires are used to treat conditions concerning the circulatory system and to strengthen the arteries. If you have stomach, liver, spleen or gallbladder problems wearing yellow Sapphires are believed to help, while the blue Sapphire is noted to help with dyslexia.

Sapphires in general are powerful gemstones. The fact that they come in so may colors gives them many uses on the Chakras. Blue Sapphires stimulate the throat Chakra, cleansing and purifying it, a Sapphire is known to heal the throat, while a green Sapphire will stimulate the heart. An indigo Sapphire on the Third Eye will strengthen creativity and imaginations through inspiration and at the same time helping to cleanse negativity form all of the other Chakras. Purple and white Sapphires stimulate the crown Chakra, the white invokes direction and purpose, and destiny of occupation. Sapphires are suggested for use by people who’s occupation takes them in the direction of helping others in the purest and most just forms, such as religious figures, politicians or judges and are motivated by the community as a whole.
