Along with ruby, sapphire is a priceless gemstone that is a member of the corundum mineral family. Despite the fact that sapphire is most often linked with the colour blue, it may also be found in a variety of other hues, such as pink, yellow, green, purple, and even colourless.

Kashmir is the most well-known location for blue sapphires, but they can also be found in Sri Lanka, Madagascar, Thailand, and Australia, among many other nations. Sapphires are heated frequently to improve their clarity and colour.

High-end jewellery, including rings, necklaces, and earrings, frequently features sapphires. They are occasionally cut into cabochons or beads, and frequently into faceted shapes like round, oval, or cushion. With a Mohs hardness rating of 9, sapphire is one of the hardest gemstones, second only to diamond.

Sapphires have a long history of use in spiritual and healing rituals in addition to jewellery. They are supposed to possess qualities that can improve insight, discernment, and intuition as well as foster spiritual development and emotional well-being.
