The Lore of Sapphire
The Catholic Church and Ancient Persians both believed that this holy stone made the sky blue with its brilliant reflections. Many ancient documents even suggest that the tablets upon which the Ten Commandments were written, were actually sapphire.
It is also believed that Sapphires bring wisdom and truth, increasing perception and the understanding of justice. It helps find peace of mind and serenity and promotes a life of sincerity, helping preserve one’s innocence while learning life’s truths.
