Sapphire is the September birthstone, so it’s time to pull them out of the jewelry box! These gems usually come in a dark hue, so they are perfect to pair with fall colors and sweaters.
The sapphire is a variety of corundum, the other two types being rubies. They typically are found as a blue gem, but they can also come in yellow, pink, purple, orange, or a greenish color. One of the most well-known blue sapphires is the 423-karat Logan sapphire at the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. It is one of the largest gem quality blue sapphires in existence.
