SEPTEMBER BIRTHSTONE-SAPPHIRE AND LAPIS LAZULI
September is the month of Sapphire, a stone said to instill wisdom, loyalty and nobility.
Sapphire personalities tend to be calm and reserved, only opening to those closest to them. They consider everything they say carefully and don't often chime in with their opinion in big groups. When they do build a sense of trust with others, it's usually deep, long-lasting and dependable.
Sapphire birthstone bearers tend to have a quiet type of dignity signaling intelligence. They have a keen sense of calm in any situation and, as a result, can make calculated decisions in high-pressure environments.
After Alexander the Great conquered Egypt and parts of Persia, he began importing lapis along with many other gems to his home in Macedonia and eventually the rest of Europe. In Europe, lapis was ground up and used as a paint pigment called ultramarine. Ultramarine was unique among the other blue pigments available because it did not lose its color when exposed to direct sunlight. This made it very expensive. This true blue stone has since become associated with encouraging honesty in your relationships and making better decisions, making lapis lazuli the perfect gift.
