Sapphire Meaning and Healing Properties

Introduction to Sapphire

Sapphire is said to have a magical effect, making many collectors bewitched for a long time. Although everyone thinks that sapphire is just a blue stone, in fact, in gem-grade corundum, except for the red series, other colors are considered sapphires (red gem-grade corundum is ruby). In addition to diamonds, humans currently know that the hardest mineral in nature is corundum (including sapphire). Sri Lanka produces the most sapphires, and of course the most beautiful cornflower sapphires are produced in Kashmir.

The colors and crystal shapes of rubies and sapphires are low-key and elegant, making people feel stable and assured. They help us focus our energies on lasting value worth investing in. This kind of stone, which our ancestors enshrined as a treasure, is still the best choice for restoring energy balance.
