A maiden born when autumn leaves
Are rustling in September’s breeze,
A sapphire on her brow should bind;
To bring her joy and peace of mind.
~Gregorian Birthstone Poems~


Blue is one of the world’s favorite colors. It is a color linked to sympathy, calmness and loyalty.
Sapphires come in a wonderful variety of blues and though some may not realize it, many other colors as well.
Depending on the minerals present in the earth during the stones formation you can find red, pinks, greens, white and even black sapphires.
Wearing of the Sapphire helps to bring about or vitalize the calmness center. It clears the mind, strengthens ones resolve to be loyal and faithful to another person or endeavor.
I absolutely love the deep blues especially when set with diamonds in white gold. White gold adds to the purity of power and intent desired  by wearing of the stone.
Setting the Sapphire into yellow gold brings out the wearers strength to complete a task with a clear mind.
For those who would like to use  different stones to achieve the same effect I have included this list;
Stones for those born in September also include; Citrine, Topaz (blue), Pearl, (Blue lace) Agate, Moonstone (Intuition and clear mind)  and Chrsolite.
To pick your new stone go to a gem shop and ask to see some of the stones. Before going you may want to go online, type in gemstones or birthstones and have fun discovering all the spiritual properties associated with the different stones.
I find the best descriptions in  “Mystical Birthstones”. 
To view your stones. Check out a website for gem suppliers or again, go to a Gem Shop or to a Gem/Bead Fair.
