S for September, S for Sapphire

The birthstone of September is the Sapphire

The Sapphire is one of the most beautiful and prized stones in the story of gems! Available in many different colours, there is no doubt about blue being the colour we first think of when Sapphire is mentioned. The most legendary sapphires once came from Kashmir and even today, they are spoken of in hushed whispers among gemstone connoisseurs. 

The blue Sapphire stands for purity, nobility and protection from all that is base and unworthy. It’s intense blue is greatly valued and ‘Neelmani’ or the blue stone, is what we call it here in India. So lets celebrate this beautiful colour that is the favourite of the brightest and the best! 

Can we imagine a world without blue?

From the sky to the sea, blue is everywhere in nature. The most beautiful flowers: Irises, Geraniums, Lilies and Dahlias are blue. Blue is the colour of forget-me-nots and indigo. The most beautiful pottery in the world is blue — whether it’s the world-famous blue pottery from Jaipur, the Delft pottery from Netherlands or the blue and white of a Wedgewood tea set.

Blue eyes have poems written to them and blue blood is deemed the most pure and hence royal! From fact to fantasy, blue is the stuff of legends. This post is dedicated to blue in all its beguiling shades. So how does Libas eulogise blue? Enjoy!
