Sapphires are the birthstone for September.

Ancient Persians called sapphire the “Celestial Stone.” It was the gem of Apollo, Greek God of prophesy and was worn by worshipers visiting his shrine in Delphi to seek his help.

The biggest source of sapphires world-wide is Australia. In the United States, a major source is the Yogo Gulch Mine in Montana.
