All your questions about September birthstones answered – hopefully!

All your questions about september birthstones answered. At least I will try to.

Let’s start with an easy one. The beautiful blue sapphire is the birthstone for September birthday girls, and boys for that matter. In fact anyone born in September.

It is also the birthstone for virgos. That means you can be born in August and have the sapphire as your birthstone if you wish.

The sapphire could be referred to as the true birthstone for September as it is the modern as well as the traditional birthstone. If you don’t like sapphires then choose moonstone (Ayurvedic) or agate (mystical). If you were born after 23rd September then see if you prefer an Opal for Libra.

However if you’re still not feeling the love for the deep rich true blue sapphire then you could plump for a pink, yellow or green sapphire. Still not sold on the idea? Then just choose a coloured gemstone that appeals to you. After all you don’t have to choose your birthstone! 

All birthstones have a special meanings. Sapphires are said to stand for serenity and truth. They are also said to guard against evil and poisoning. A weird combination but that’s before more enlightened times. Or maybe not depending on your point of view. 

Something I didn’t know was that in the New Testament, 12 foundation stones were given specific qualities related to Christ. Sapphire was The Soul.
