Birthstone for December. Sapphire is still a stone of wisdom, a stone of learning. Its blue ray brings order and healing to the mind, lending strength and focus, and an ability to see beneath surface appearances to underlying truths and to utilize that knowledge. It stimulates the Throat and Third Eye Chakras, allowing the wearer to access deeper levels of consciousness in order to gain a better understanding of oneself. Associated with the planet Saturn, Blue Sapphire embraces order, structure, and self-discipline, and is ideal for achieving goals and turning ideas into reality. Sapphire’s power to remove negative thoughts and energy also makes it highly effective.
