SAPPHIRE - from the Latin word meaning blue, the birthstone for September.
Despite the huge gems you see in museums and Royal collections, sapphires available on the market are of a more modest size. Sapphires of the top blue color over 5 carats, if clean, are rare and expensive. Next to diamond, sapphire and ruby (both corundum) is the hardest mineral known and is very compact and dense, with no cleavage. As a result, sapphires and rubies are tough and relatively scratch-resistant. That's why, in addition to their beauty, sapphires and rubies are two of the best jewelry.
