What is the September Birthstone? Sapphire

The September birthstone is sapphire – a gem that’s been cherished for thousands of years. Although the term sapphire usually refers to the blue variety of corundum (ruby is the red variety), this birthstone comes in a rainbow of other colors. Sapphires are mined in many countries around the world, including Sri Lanka, Thailand, Australia, and the United States. The most valuable sapphires are those that are deep blue in color and have no visible inclusions.
