September Birthstone = Sapphire

Since September is upon us, let's talk about the beautiful September birthstone, SAPPHIRE! This is definitely one of my favorite stones; however, it is one of the hardest ones for me to find in beads for bracelets. The last string I got came from India. The last batch I had came from Austrailia. But the time I spent searching & waiting was well worth it. Aside from being September's birthstone, Sapphire has healing properties as well.

Sapphire is known as the wisdom stone. If helps in focusing & calming the mind. It rids unwanted thoughts; brings joy & peace of mind by opening the mind to beauty & intuition. Known as the “stone of prosperity”, sustaining the gifts of life, eliminating frustration, & fulfilling the desires of consciousness. Tends to emanate & radiate energy without one’s conscious initiation. Provides strength to the user. The stone releases depression & spiritual confusion. It stimulates concentration. (This information was obtained from one of my favorite gemstone books, Love Is In The Earth by Melody & The Crystal Bible by Judy Hall)

The bracelet shown is currently for sale in my Artfire shop:

There is only one listed but others are available.....just ask!

Sapphire comes in an array of colors: blue, black, pink, green, purple, royal, white, yellow & star sapphire.
