Sapphire Similarly to rubies, sapphire is a form of the valued mineral corundum. Most people think of sapphires being only blue, but this gemstone also comes in a variety of colors including orange, yellow, and pink. The popular deep blue sapphire is associated with the third eye or throat chakra; orange with sacral; yellow with solar plexus; and pink with the third eye chakra. It is a stone for protection and manifestation. Sapphire helps with self-expression, communication, speaking personal truth, loyalty, surrendering of personal will to Divine will, and sleep issues. It works well with ruby. Sapphire is particularly powerful when used with some type of vocal meditations such as mantra meditations. It can be placed on or near the appropriate chakra, especially the throat chakra, as a necklace or earrings, or near the head of your bed for insomnia.
Sapphire is most popularly known as a stone of tranquility, peace, and spiritual truth. If you are looking to channel healing energies from a higher source, this is an excellent stone to add to your collection, especially if you practice Reiki. Sapphire has the ability to guide users on the spiritual path and can help boost both spiritual and psychic powers. I mentioned earlier that there are Biblical references of Sapphire being placed in the breastplate of High Priests. It is believed that this stone has protective powers and seems to have been used through history. There are many different colors of sapphire depending on the trace metals they have.
