SEPTEMBER BIRTHSTONES

This month Virgo & Libra are channeling their inner gemstones of Sapphire & Lapis Lazuli

Sapphire

Sapphire draws its name from the Sanskrit word “sani” that signifies “Saturn,” hence, the ancients from India and Europe had identified it as the stone of Saturn. The Sapphire is acknowledged as a stone of wisdom, as it favors the desire for knowledge.

Lapis Lazuli

The ancients appreciated laps lazuli as a bearer of truth and light. The golden particles on the surface were compared to stars in the night sky. Lapis, also known as a power stone, was one of the most esteemed and widely used stones by the pharaohs of ancient Egypt. It was worn as a protection against the “evil eye”, and used as ornaments on royal homes.
