Looking for a birthday present for that special September baby in your life? Get a little inspiration from Sapphire, September's birthstone. Here are a few facts about Sapphires from our favorite Gem Encyclopedia - from the GIA.

Besides blue sapphire and ruby, the corundum family also includes so-called “fancy sapphires.” They come in violet, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, and intermediate hues. Some stones exhibit the phenomenon known as color change, most often going from blue in daylight or fluorescent lighting to purple under incandescent light. Sapphires can even be gray, black, or brown.

VIVID AND SATURATED

Sapphire’s blue can be vivid and saturated, like it’s lit from within. 

DURABLE

It’s so durable, synthetic sapphire is used for the windows of supermarket scanners and spacecraft.

DELICATE SILK

Sapphire often contains delicate intersecting needles of rutile that gemologists call silk.

FACTS

  • MINERAL: Corundum
  • COLOR: Every color but red
