Sapphire is a type of Corundum which crystallizes in the form of tabular prismatic crystals with hexagonal double pyramid structures. The colour range includes blue, white, black, purple (also known as oriental Amethyst), yellow (known also as Oriental Topaz), and green (known also as Oriental Emerald).
Sapphire also occurs in the form of asterated or “star” sapphire, the “star” results due to the inclusion of small cylindrical cavities within the stone which are parallel to the prism planes.
The sapphire is known as a “stone of prosperity”, sustaining the gifts of life, eliminating frustration, and fulfilling the dreams and the desires of the consciousness. It tends to focus emanate, and to radiate energy without ones conscious initiation.
