Sapphire History and Uses:
Sapphire was used by the Etruscans over 2,500 years ago and was also prized in ancient Rome, Greece and Egypt. Revered as a stone of royalty, sapphire was believed to keep kings safe from harm or envy. It was also purported to protect you from dishonesty, fraud, terror, poverty, and even stupidity and ill temper. The three crossed lines in a Star Sapphire have been said to represent hope, faith and destiny, and in German lore it was considered a stone of victory.
Although all corundums share some energies in common, the various colours of Sapphire have individual vibrational signatures and different spiritual properties.
